One might have thought that the last few days have been pretty good for Britain’s OAPs. First came the news that Rishi Sunak intended to conscript the young for military national service. Good riddance! Then came the announcement that the Tories would grant tax cuts for millions of pensioners — a big electoral play for the grey vote.

But unfortunately for Sunak and co., the UK’s golden oldies remain unimpressed. A new poll has found that over half (54%) believe that the Tories’ pension proposals do not go far enough versus just 4% who think they go too far. There’s just no pleasing some people.
