If the Tories break the triple lock, pensioners will break the Tories

Arthur Scargill 7/9/2021


STOP THE GOVERNMENT STEALING THE TRIPLE LOCK ACT NOW TO SAVE RETIRED PEOPLE'S STATE PENSION


In 2010 The Government introduced The Triple Lock in order that Pensioners would be guaranteed that their pension's would be protected, as a result pensions have not lost value, The Triple Lock ensures that State Pensions increase by the Increase in Average Earnings, or the Increase in Consumer Prices (CPI) or 2.5 per cent whichever is the highest of the three. In the General Election in 2019 Boris Johnson pledged to maintain. Now the Tory Government are considering ending the Triple Lock, a move which would slash annual pensions but be a monumental breach of the promise by the Prime Minister to maintain the guarantee the Triple Lock, but would be a Lie to 13 million pensioners who have had this guarantee since 2010. If the Government terminate the Triple Lock I call on all Trade Union's to take strike action and I call on all 13 million pensioners and all people in the United Kingdom to take to the streets not only to protest but to demand that the Government resign and call a General Election.
