Pensioners get off scot-free yet again

As a father of two young children I was thrilled to see that pensioners are being spared any cuts in this Budget. It is comforting to know that while the young, the sick and the unemployed are all sharing the pain, pensioners will once again be spared.

After all, those responsible for building this wonderful society of ours should be rewarded.

It's not for young people like me with a mortgage and childcare expenses to question the free travel, free healthcare, free TV licence and defined benefit pensions that pensioners enjoy.
