And that's the bit that is illegal for a non-government pension scheme.
But doubtless you will expect your pension when the time comes - having contributed (and been promised a pension) all your working life !

I will. But if I decide to leave the UK and take my pension elsewhere to take advantage of the cheaper cost of living then I won’t expect the UK to continue to increase it in line with the cost of living in a country I no longer live in nor contribute to.

Except that a pensioner abroad is a net benefit to the UK fiscal purse.

Quote "The government has previously accepted that there is an average £4,300 (£3,800 in 2010) net saving per pensioner that moves overseas(mainly from unused health and social care)"

and there is a net cost to any pensioner returning

Quote "We know from our membership that the financial reality of frozen pensions is a significant factor for some of the 2,500 (average) pensioners from frozen countries returning to the UK each year."

and

Quote "Numerous studies have concluded that older people consume NHS resources at an order of magnitude greater than a young person. A pensioner in their 80’s can cost the NHS 8 times the cost of a person in their 40’s"

and

Quote "Any policy change that facilitates pensioner emigration therefore makes sound economic sense"

Quotes taken from http://frozenbritishpensions.org/wp-...s-Jan-2016.pdf

So apart from the discrimination which has been accepted as fact by various high court cases over the years it would actually make sense to up-rate the state pension. Oh and how does anyone justify up-rating pensions if you retire to the USA but not if you retire to Canada?

Which applies equally to current pensioners in the UK.

​​​​​​It's not as though the UK can't afford the rises - with £350 million a week being freed up.

Perhaps all the pensioners in Europe should move back, en masse, to the UK, that'll give the NHS something to think about.

old retired people living abroad don't count for anything much & can be ignored - that's the thinking

Pity that the "meaningful" vote has now been put back until 12th March.
