    An interactive presentation to show how costs have escalated and seniors are suffering. More talk to look as if they care. At least take a doggy bag and fill it with cookies to take home. Likely advice to eat less, turn off the A/C and lights and basically live like the 1800′s while Ministers enjoy their ridiculously high salaries. When will the date for the first payment of the pension increase be announced?

    Why is this even necessary?
    Why does Tinee Furbert say: “We understand that seniors are facing additional challenges in light of the rising cost of living”?
    Pensions were just put up by 2.75%, back-dated to August 2021. According to the government, inflation was 1.6% in 2021 and is 3% in 2022. So according to the government’s own statistics, pensioners have nothing to worry about, because their pensions have been increased in line with inflation.
    Or does Furbert really think, like the rest of us, that the government’s statistics are a load of rubbish?
