Magazine programme with Tim Hamilton, addressing issues which affect pensioners across London. Today: the National Pensioners Convention's January 2018 campaign bulletin reveals that for the first time Britain’s state pension is now the worst in the developed world. And it warns the government's decision to allow local authorities in England to increase council tax by 1% in 2018 is 'woefully inadequate' to address the funding gap facing adult social care. Plus news of the Convention’s Dignity Action Day on 1st February where groups around the country will promote the NPC’s message for a National Care Service.
