No, I think that they’ve paid their dues throughout their lives. They might be wealthier than some people, but I don't see why we should be targeting the old pensioners.
Yes, because they don’t need it. I used to be able to receive child benefits, but I don’t need it. Same thing [in this case]: if they need it, we can means test it rather than give it out to everybody. It’s logical.
I can’t believe that is the [key to] keeping us off a recession – it doesn’t stack up. Come election time, politically sensitive ways of saving money won’t be number one on their agenda. Hitting old people, I don’t think it’s vote winning.
