I received an EMail from a friend in Australia today which I have copied as it is a shocker. So if you have always voted Labour because your parents did now you know what they did with your money! If you ever believed Gorgon Brown when he talked about fairness in our society now you know what he meant!I really believe that the Coalition should address this imbalance immediately and I mean NOW! Here we go...
Let me see if I understand all this .........

Please forward to all your contacts so that we can lobby for an increase in the aged pension.
After all, the average pensioner has paid taxes and contributed to the growth of this country for the last 40 to 60 years.
We have just had an election campaign which lasted for weeks and never once did I hear any of them revealing this shocking discrepancy. These figures may or may not be accurate but I think we pensioners should be owed an explanation. This has of course often been exposed in some by the mainstream media but the actual figures are hard to comprehend.
I just hope that Iain Duncan-Smith has these people firmly on his horizon. It is utterly shocking that any government should treat its own pensioners in this way and once again demonstrates that Brown and his cabinet should be answering to a court of law.
