MPs should live on pension

Sir,

Regarding Mr Thorne’s letter re the budget (Advertiser, Thursday April 12).

Pensioners who receive pension credit do not get the full £5.30 as the pension credit is reduced. I wonder how many pensioners realise this.

David Cameron and his cronies saying we are all in this together is one big joke.

He and his front bench millionaire ministers want to try and live on unemployment benefits and pensions for at least one year, I don’t think they would last for one month, never mind a year.
