andyh4 Posted July 4, 2012 Share Posted July 4, 2012 [quote user="Russethouse"]So why not when it is public money?But thats the point, it is public money and there is not enough to go around, so why give it to people who will in the most part, add it to the economy of another country? Then stop it for everyone. I have no problem with that. I simply object to being treated as a second class who it seems lazes around in tropical sunshine all winter.The idea that you can go where you want and receive money in the same way as you would in the UK just wont work, what about the anomally of those who live in Canada and Australia who do not even get the pension increments? Those anomolies are also unfair, but importantly are not contradicted in law.Furthermore my guess is that Wooly for instance, like many others, gets a proportion of a pension because he doesn't qualify for a full one, is he now going to get a full heating allowance ? I believe that is how it works in the UK. So if that is the rule, that is the rule.[/quote] YCCM Betty - when I left the UK with eyes wide open, I would receive a pension linked to inflation and WFA stood for something rude that had nothing to do with pensions. You might argue then that I had no expectation of a fuel bonus - but then the bonus was partly in lieu of changes to the inflation proofing Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
