Pensioners show us how it's done.

From The Express:

OLDER voters are considering withholding support from the Tories if Chancellor Rishi Sunak ditches the Government’s pledge to hike the state pension in line with average earnings, a survey warns today…

In a series of interviews last month, Mr Sunak refused to say whether the Triple Lock guarantee would be honoured this year.

“The Triple Lock is the government’s policy but I very much recognise people’s concerns,” he said in response to concerns about the potential cost. I think they are completely legitimate and fair concerns to raise. We want to make sure the decisions we make and the systems we have are fair, both for pensioners and for taxpayers,” the Chancellor added.

Whatever the rights and wrongs of an issue, the lesson is that if you want something, you just have to vote for it (‘green’ measures, Brexit, high pensions etc). Voter turnout among pensioners is very high, with corresponding results, so all parties have to be at least as ‘generous’ as the others.

And if you want the government to collect taxes from land values instead of from wages and ouput, just vote for it. If you’re in Scotland, vote for the Scottish Greens; if you’re in Yorkshire, vote for the Yorkshire Party and everywhere else, you have to get on the ballot paper for Young People’s Party (we are still waiting to hear from El Comm on the name change).
