We've plenty to be grateful for, Kathy.
Quite right. Unless of course you take into account the people who have benefited from the fall of unemployment, low mortgage interest rates, the minimum wage, working families' tax credit, SureStart, winter fuel payments, free eye tests for pensioners, increases in child benefit and pensions especially for the worst-off pensioners, massive investment in housing, school buildings, health service, extra police, maternity leave and to come in the next 12 months free bus travel for pensioners and extended childcare. Come on, Kathy, look around at what is actually happening.
COUN SIR JEREMY BEECHAM, Gosforth, Newcastle.
