Thanks for the welcome Fly.
I think that it is pretty obvious what's going on here, in a couple of years the payment of Pension Credit will cease as the basic pension will have risen above the level where it is paid. That will be disastrous for many of the poorer pensioners as it is the link to other benefits like free optical and dental, automatic housing benefit and council tax benefit and the like. I believe it is also linked to the warm homes discount for single pensioners.
Still, I guess it will save the government a few bob that they can distribute amongst their wealthy cronies. Take care before you vote next spring, what politicians don't tell us is far more important than what they do. Can't wait for a Tory or LibDem to ring my door bell.
It seems curiously enough that we have got our wish granted. Enterprise Inns no longer own the Somerset House. It has been bought by another brewery and is under new management.
It appears that the business dealings between Tesco & Enterprise are being investigated due to alleged underhand practice, or so I'm told.
This appears to be the reason behind the Crispin getting its reprieve as well - Tesco pulled out for a reason.
What this all means in terms of the Crooked Spire pub refurbishment (owned by Enterprise) I'm not sure, but I can't say that I've seen anyone working in it all week.
