      Does anybody know at what income per year that Clegg intends to test and remove the bus pass, please?

      I started work at 15 years old and worked 2 years past retirement age, no time off looking after my child either, when I married the first time I advised my employer that my name had changed as I was now married. I was then put onto a married woman's stamp and when i queried it I was told I would still get a pension when my husband retired. I was not told it would be much lower than if i had been left to pay as a single person! I then divorced and payed a full stamp but only get 17% of a single person's pension. I am re-married now but my husband is 6 years younger than me so I can only get the 17% of a single pension still until he retires and then I do not get a full single pension. Nobody informed us then of what would happen in the future and pensions weren't talked about much then either. Now they want to remove the bus pass the only way I get out a couple of times a week! After working for over 40 years, I feel woman are really still badly treated from our generation. We won't get any of the new pension rates, too expensive I have been told to give it to us pensioners that have already retired. If our governments spent less money abroad and on health care and benefits for immigrants they might be able to look after their own, who have lived here all of our lives, no wonder people are a bit bitter to say the least

      I would not be able to afford to get to the hospital for appointments, would only be able to get to the shops once a week. I do not abuse my bus pass and only travel as needed. I am crippled with arthritis in my feet and back and have trouble getting around so cannot drive even if I could afford to have a car. If they take the bus pass away I think I might as well give up the ghost!
