    As much as I’d hate for the Conservatives to undermine their own credibility by breaking more promises, if they do break one, please let it be the triple lock. For me it’s the single biggest failing of the Conservative’s fiscal responsibility, but nobody seems to be talking about it!
    I am all for making difficult cuts to eliminate the deficit, but when they arbitrarily give billions extra every year to pensioners for no good reason other than for them to not kick up a fuss, it really does undermine the argument for welfare cuts.

    Before people comment on the state pension they should try living on it.
