      Hi, I am Karen just joined the community today. I am 63 and live on the outskirts of Nottingham. Still working though partially retired now with only 3 years left to endure hahaha. I have continued to  work throughout lockdown as classes as a key worker.  I feel very fortunate about that even though I really can’t wait to retire!. 2 gorgeous grown up children and live happily alone.

      I’m very close 60 this year. Starting to feel a little jittery about leaving my 50’s but I’m hoping the next decade will also bring some new beginnings.

      Stressfull times we are living in, no pension due to increase in pension age. Up to 65 from 60 for women, that’s me. I’m diabetic, have arthritis in knees and spondolyousis in neck and spine. Out of work and desperately looking for a job. Not looking good, and to top it all. Pips has been reduced to the lowest level, they even stripped me of my freedom Pass just because they decided to move the gate posts yet again. Question?, What is left for poor sick people?.   I see that the PM took over £900,00000, to respray the airplane in red,white and blue colours he uses to fly around the world to see presidents ect. Why not feed that money back into the NHS and feed poor unemployed and homeless people instead of letting them suffer during this pandemic crises??.

      • Reply by paulinevaughan2015

        Yes rediculous spending all that money on a plane when they are in the middle of the present crisis.

        Putting the state pension age up, in my case to 67, has resulted in many of us having to claim state benefits as we can’t work. In my case Covid has left me with Chronic Fatigue meaning I have lost my job which was fairly physical. Employers are not going to take on a 60 year old who has days when she just can not do anything.

        Universal credit is enough to survive on nothing more and only if your very careful. The government seems to be concentrating on helping only the young to find work. I understand that the young need help but so do we oldies.

        It is innevetable we are going to loose a lot of jobs so why not bring the pension age back down?

      • Reply by higginsjoyce030

        Yes,but, what are your thoughts regarding the treatment of people like myself in this bad,bad situation. Where all having to tighten our belt buckles even further than we can manage and all the politicians are doing is spending money,not there own personal money,but,spending from the public purse and stealing from the poor and needy. I find it hard to believe these people care,in fact,they have never truly cared,although this pandemic crises they mainly mentioned Brexit more than anything else. And now,after these people in power have got to where they are,all they can do is show us that they have now decided to wear face masks. Oh yes, and guess what the colour of the mask happened to be,yeah,you guessed it, “Blue”.

      • Reply by killermomuk

        I agree with you! It was ridiculous to spend that On an aeroplane. The money could have been used so much better!
