  1. Please lets stay calm: but remember the LOCAL / EUROPEAN ELECTIONS are coming up in 2014


  2. The last four years…
    …I’d rather forget. I’m more concerned with tomorrow and the next year.
    It was about this time in 2008 that I started to receive state pension as my basic income. The amount today is the same as it was then but the value has decreased considerably.
    What’s the outlook?
    Rumours, as usual are plentiful. Reduction of telephone allowance – (not much left to reduce.)
    Increase in prescription charges?
    Last time it went from 50c to €1.50. I had expected an increase but not 200%!
    What will it be this time? – €2.50 or most likely more. I’m on a medicinal ‘cocktail’ which usually costs €18.00 per month. Doesn’t seem all that much, but €4.50 a week rising to possibly €7.50 + all the other obvious, hidden and indirect charges.

    One of these days I may gather the last four budget changes to calculate the real value of the pension.
