I have recently signed a petition aimed at trying to put pressure on political parties to reverse the State Pension age and felt that it was important and relevant to post this on Prostate Cancer UK's Online Community to try and gain much needed support. Why? Well the changes to the State Pension Age are not only unfair and discriminatory but the rises have been accelerated much faster than promised and without appropriate notice. This is particularly pertinent to those of us who have been touched by Prostate Cancer at a time when concerns about financial security should not be yet another thing we need to worry about. So, I would ask you to please read more and add your name to the petition below. We need to act quickly as it is going to be presented to Parliament very soon.

To give extra impetus some of us have taken this up with our MPs, citing it as an election “deal breaker” and also with Gregg McClymont MP, Shadow Minister for Work and Pensions. If you are interested in taking this next step, thank you.
If you have a moment, take a look at the information contained in these links – I think you will be shocked and surprised ….

Thank you and fingers crossed!
Everything written in the Daily Mail shocks me :O(
It's a comic, they set out intending to shock and alarm. That is what they do. Don't worry about it.
