Winter fuel allowance


(Joseph Morris) #1

Hi, I live in Sornac, limousin, two years ago it wheat down to -25c with about 300mm snow for about two weeks it never got above zero, today we have a wind chill factor of minus 13c but the government have proved with statistics that france no longer requires the wfa for pensioners because it’s too warm ! Hope the politicians who are responsible for this are warm in their paid for Chelsea flats !

Good idea!


(Joseph Morris) #3

Perhaps we should all send emails to one mp at a time until he is sick of opening them, could do it on a rota system of all members of survive france over a period of a few days per mp! P… them off a bit


(Brian Milne) #4

I think we shall allow you to add the missing letters to my only comment to that MP. BS!


(Graham Pratt) #5

Please find attached a standard reply from my MP! doesn't look very promising.
