BPiA Chairman’s Monthly Report – Oct 2011

BPiA Chairman’s Monthly Report – Oct 2011

The main item of interest for our members in the past few weeks has been the introduction into the UK Parliament of another petition on the subject of the frozen pensions. In the past few days many of our members who have previously signed an earlier ICBP petition will have been sent another invitation to sign this latest version. So please bear with me as I also invite those who have not been asked so far to get involved.

The main item of interest for our members in the past few weeks has been the introduction into the UK Parliament of another petition on the subject of the frozen pensions. In the past few days many of our members who have previously signed an earlier ICBP petition will have been sent another invitation to sign this latest version.

Please bear with me as I also invite those who have not been asked so far to get involved for we need to apply a maximum effort on this occasion because if we can achieve 100,000 signatures, the British Government claims the matter petitioned will be debated in Parliament. Please therefore ensure you have signed this petition and ask all your relatives and friends, especially those living in the UK, to sign it too.

Rather than repeat the petition which is on the subject of; “END THE UNFAIR OVERSEAS FROZEN PENSION POLICY”, it is recommended that you access it by holding down the CONTROL (Ctrl) Key whilst “left-clicking’ on the website http://bit.ly/BritPensions , follow the prompts and;-

  • Click on “British Citizen” even if you have taken out Australian citizenship, signing this petition is only open to British citizens.
  • And apply your Australian address (include your State name immediately after your Town).       Enter your Australian Post Code where shown. 
  • Then for Country, find Australia by scrolling up in the listing offered. It works.
  • And tick the box agreeing to the terms and conditions. Follow the instructions by entering the security codes in the box shown. This will prevent your message being treated as “˜Spam.”
  • Finally you will have to confirm your involvement when you receive back a confirming email.
  • Only one entry can be made for each email address, so if there are multiple users at your computer sign-up for free emails with Hushmail Hotmail or gmail. 

Please take part in this aspect of our campaign and please encourage many others to do the same so we can reach 100,000. We have a year to September 2012 to achieve this number but we hope to reach the 100,000 target long before that.
