The cost of providing free TV for the over 75 year olds will soon rise to over a billion!!!
The country cannot afford it!!
We are only the 5th most wealthy country!
The elderly are not productive!! They are living too long!!
Yes it might be a lifeline for the lonely. It might be their only companion, their only news, their only connection with the outside world, their only friendly voice, their only entertainment and their only participation in society, but why should we pay for them?
Perhaps they’ll give up and die quicker?
One Billion pounds is far too much!!
Yet ten Billion pounds in tax cuts for the rich is perfectly acceptable!!
Have the callous Tories got their priorities right?
