Reality Check

Are you aware of the following ?

The British Government provides the following financial assistance:-

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER

(bearing in mind they worked hard and paid their Income Tax and National Insurance contributions to the British Government all their working life)

  • Weekly allowance: £106.00?      

REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN

(No Income Tax and National Insurance contribution)

  • Weekly allowance: £250.00

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER

  • Weekly Spouse Allowance: £25.00?      

REFUGEES LIVING INBRITAIN

  • Weekly Spouse Allowance: £225.00

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER

  • Additional Weekly Hardship Allowance: £0.00?

REFUGEES LIVING INBRITAIN

  • Additional Weekly Hardship Allowance: £100.00

A  British old age pensioner is no less hard up than an immigrant/refugee yet receives nothing

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER

  • TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £6,000? 

REFUGEES LIVING INBRITAIN

  • TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT: £29,900

Sad isn't it?

This is not a “pop” at refugees or immigrants. GF is proud that these people wish to come here and make a better life. GF thinks they bring a rich diversity to our country and many of them are extremely hard working. IGF welcomes these newcomers, though does believe that they should integrate – he is an implacable adversary of multi-culturalism, which he sees as divisive and damaging.

What this is is and expose of the inequities of life in modern Britain, where the old are discarded and treated with contempt. It will be interesting, as the aging population grows – thanks to post-war baby-boom – whether the silver voters will finally get a voice.
