    That’s because we’re not talking about an otherworldly donation to the Labour party, but her appalling letter.

    I passed your message on and now we’re waiting to hear from the Health Board.

    Indeed Matt, not a hint of human compassion is to be found in this approach.

    Fake law is a serious problem these days, so I’ve found two Twitter threads that correct the legal and factual errors in Ms Atherton’s letter. I hope the links work:

    They were prevented or held back from doing so by vicious Tory council cuts, aka ‘austerity.’

    Thankfully, the Assembly seem to have found a way forward, in spite of these austerity cuts, irrationally endorsed by Conservative voters.

    The Welsh Government seem to have done a U- turn.

    Welsh Government in A Level result u-turn as students will now get predicted grades along with GCSE students

    Good, let’s hope the WAG will start to be clearer that England is not a good example to follow.

    Yes, they could have used an algorithm that gave students credit for the extra hassle they’ve had to deal with. Why not give them the benefit of the doubt and mark them by assuming that they did their best?

    Instead, it looks like they’ve used an algorithm that cements existing inequalities.

    By the way, I don’t know if it’s still available, but there were government grants for pensioners who need a new boiler. Worth checking out if you need one.

    This sorry sidebar just shows how effective ‘divide and rule’ is. Well played, Daily Mail, Sun, Express, etc, I have to hand it to you.

    The state pension has always been part of social security spending, it’s included in most of the pie charts. It’s part of ‘cradle to grave,’ which is supposed to be about a bare minimum decent standard for everybody.

    They’ve already gone after young people and disabled people, and soon they’ll be going after pensioners. What happened to the free TV licence for over 75s? Look at how they keep pushing the pension qualifying age higher. Some even wanted to make pensioners work for their pension after they’ve retired, which is a bit of a cheek. And that’s before we talk about how low the state pension is compared to other European countries.

    Yet, instead of getting angry with the politicians who organised this rotten deal for pensioners, some people would rather get angry with ill people, disabled people and unemployed people; even though corona virus ought to have taught us that sometimes there will be less jobs or no job for you, and it’s nobody’s fault. How many have lost their job? 720, 000? How many people will lose their job in the deepest recession since records began? Do they deserve a good old sneer too?

    But, hey, like I said, it’s amazing how effective ‘divide and rule’ is.

    All benefits. There are many different taxes, not just income tax. From each according to their ability, to each according to their needs – and that applies to green home grants too, sorry.
