PENSIONERS in Gloucestershire could have extra cash in their pockets after David Cameron announced new financial plans.

The Prime Minister has pledged to extend rises to the state pension until at least 2020.

He also promised that if he is re-elected in 2015 he will ensure that pensions rise by at least 2.5 per cent a year during the five-year parliamentary term.

He described the pledge as “huge”, saying the additional financial security would help to give people dignity in old age.

    This swine needs horse-whipping, as befits the charlatan he is.

    Dodgy Dave has gone back on nearly everything he has promised since he became PM. 'nuff said?

    It's always ''could'' or ''if'' . Those who currently get their state pension won't qualify for the higher flat-rate state pension when that comes in in 2016 .

    Pretty much every time a member of this atrocious government makes a statement, it is either a blatant lie, or it is a promise that hides something bad, so don't expect to actually get any increase if they get in the next time because they will find a way to take it back again!

    He's only retaining the status quo. Completely logical since freezing pensions would increase benefit applications, and they would cost more to administer since they would all have to be individually assessed.
