It should stay permanently, as a reminder to politicians, who now are taking away bus passes, , local ring and ride buses, stopping the winter fuel allowance, making things harder for pensioners with the "Universal Credit", all of us in the British Isles should look at that sea of blood seeping into the ground, and be ashamed, that pensions are counted as welfare,
Pensions were paid for from wages weekly/monthly "P.A.Y.E." wages,
Now some Pensioners who need a place at a nursing home, have to sell their home and use their savings to pay, for health care. "cradle to grave" health care" they were promised, well they didn't get to their grave did they? , so with very financial assurance removed, a good walk amongst the poppies might just prick their conscience, but then wasn't it politicians who called for war?,
Not forgetting Mr Cameron's rent is 35 pw for a W1 address, see he did a good deal for himself and Osborne 25pw with the taxman.
