As is pointed out in the article below (see link) the UK state pension is presently based on the National Insurance contributions of an individual not that individual's wealth. If the government were to suddenly make it means tested wouldn't that be moving the goal posts just a tad too far? The goal posts have already been moved remember by the raising of the state pension age (now 66 years).  ...

I know that in the scheme of things £900,000 is not a big amount but is this really necessary given the economic hit so many have taken over the past few months and that so many more will be feeling in the months to come? Couldn't that £900,000 have been spent in a better way? ...

Just did a quick search online and found out that until 1926 there was a brewery in the High Street that ...

Yes I know it was a pub called the Hole in the Wall. But hasn't it been used for other things since the pub closed? Or has it opened as a pub again? The planning application refers to it as a pub (implying that is what it is presently used for).  So my first thought was, there is no pub on the Strand.
