No, Paul, We Don't Want to Means Test Pensioners!

Message to Paul Burstow. Think before you open your mouth.

Means testing people to decide if they should get £200 winter fuel payment is wrong, Wrong, Wrong.

You'd create more bureaucracy.
You'd discourage people from saving for old age.
You'd encourage people to hide their money.
It's actually just an extension of the pension and helps politicians to look good when it get cold.
Give pensioners a decent pension and leave it at that. Same for all.

People who don't need it, spend it elsewhere putting money back into the economy and helping to keep others in employment.
