Re: Pensions - no wonder there are strikes

Things were all supposed to be finalised by the 8th of March in order to bring in the first increase in contributions on the 1st April. However it all seems to have gone quiet. I spoke to the FBU on the 8th, and they said that it had gone to the Ombudsman, and they were waiting to hear back.

It all seems to have gone quiet. Does anyone know what is going on?

I presume that it won't come in on the 1st April now.

I wouldn't think like that if I was you, that Queen has more say than what you think, it just doesn't get broadcasted, everything that prime ministers suggest or plan is most likely run through the queen first.

When they say the Queen is just a figure, I don't entirely believe that, I think the use of Prime ministers and some use of political parties is a front to say the UK is a democratic country and that the citizens have a say on who is running the country.

There is a lot of things that governments hide or adopt to control people, simple things like adding Sodium Fluoride to water, the type of Fluoride being used is not natural, its toxic waste sold to the water industry from other industries enforced by the government. It is common knowledge that it can help reduce dental problems, but it can also cause health problems as well control people making them more dosile,submissive and abiding and you notice, it is only added to areas in the UK where anti-social behaviour is higher than other parts. Like I said it can cause health problems such as bone diseases, cutting years off peoples lives and that can work wonders to decrease an increasing population of 'elderly'/over 65's.

People say that it's just a bit of fluoride at low levels, but toothpaste,tea and medications such as anti-depressants all contain it, meaning it is a cocktail of Fluoride.

The next thing is National Insurance, you pay it for the government to look after you when you become unemployed or for use for Pension Credit, the government seems very reluctant to letting you see that money again when you most need, they will keep putting up the retirement age up and up so by the time you will be at pension age, you will be dead!

And then there is Tobacco,alcohol and recreational drugs. They are widely available yet so bad for your health, why don't they just ban them if they are so bad for you? They won't because it is a good tax subsidise as well as a easy way for them to control you and decrease a population, that is why support for Alcohol dependency is poor, you have to pay good money for Alcohol dependency support, most of the people who do have a problem are a minority of people who do not work,have no potential for the governments taxation system and people with chronic health problems, easy way for the government to get shut of its problems. As for recreational drugs don't think for one minute they don't have any help from insiders from the government to help bring that rubbish in to the country, again the current legislation on recreational drugs is a mess, but then again it has not been set up to stop people really.

But people have to face it that the country is not in a mess like you think it is, it is done deliberately to rid the country of certain individuals. So you just have to be strong, save money,avoid taxes(legally via loopholes),don't drink and don't smoke

Some people reading will think i'm being extremely paranoid or mad, but I thought the same once, but the more you think about it, makes more sense and you will understand what i'm trying to get at.

Re: Pensions - no wonder there are strikes

Nick Herbert. What an utter, utter, utter tool.

He's on BBC News right now telling people who are getting shafted by pension contribution increases that it's 'futile' if they protest and the government is going to press ahead with the changes.
