    So while benefits where only going up by small amounts it was ok but now that the September inflation figures are high they are going to move the goal posts. Can’t wait to see the responses from people like Age Uk!!!!

    Mr Clegg said: “I think we all know that we are having to do something extremely difficult.

    “But we have been very, very clear, we’re not going to balance the books on the backs of the poor. That will remain our guiding principle as we continue to take these difficult decisions in the weeks, months and years to come.”

    Have you read the Welfare Reform Bill, Nick?

    From the BBC article:

    It is not thought that any change to the planned 5.2% rise in pensions is being considered.
