Dozens of Conservative lawmakers have been warned that the party has lost older voters due to the betrayal of the state-owned pension triple lock.
Hundreds of members wrote to local lawmakers and registered their disappointments with the party.
In one letter seen by Me, A former Conservative supporter said: [Johnson] From me, thousands of people won’t vote for the Tories again because of what he’s doing to pensioners. My wife and I don’t.
“He broke all Tory manifesto promises and wouldn’t be upheld,” they said.
The news can be worrisome to governments asking MPs how many unfortunate emails they have received, according to the Politics Home website.
Last week, Labor Pension Secretary Thérèse Coffey announced that he would abolish Triple Lock for a year to avoid giving older people an unusually high increase in state pensions.
This policy ensures that state-owned pensions increase each year on income, inflation, or 2.5 percent, whichever is higher.
However, the government has decided to remove the one-year earnings link, despite the fact that it breaks the promises of the election manifesto to explain how wages were distorted in the pandemic.
Silver Voices, which has been campaigning for the 1960s and above, said it had received hundreds of complaints from disgruntled seniors, many of whom also included contacting local MPs.
Some say they will resign from the party “over the government’s perception of indifference to the needs of older people when they get out of the pandemic,” said Dennis Reed, director of Silver Voice.
In addition to the anger at Triple Rock, some are angry at the end of the Universal Free TV license over the age of 75.
“The Conservatives are now enjoying a legitimate return for breaking the manifesto’s promise to respect triple lock,” Reed said in a report that voters would abandon the party.
“As the prices of necessities and services go up, anger continues to grow, and older people understand how much is stolen each week.
“Silver Voices will campaign to restore triple locks until April next year, when pension increases are planned.”
Reed also targeted Age UK after charity director Caroline Abrahams said: If that’s really a one-off measure and not a sneaky way for the minister to abandon triple lock altogether. “
“A charity that seems to be claiming the best interests of older people speaks on behalf of stubborn pensioners, saying that defective social care plans are a worthwhile price to pay,” he said. I was surprised to have arrogance. “
