See SF South want to reduce Pension Age to 65 did they not vote to raise it here to 66 some time ago.

Their manifesto for last general election proposed a massive overhaul to the existing pensions setup. They want to do away with the existing tax incentives, with the argument being that they mostly benefit those who are already the wealthiest. I'm sure that is true, as it makes sense that those with more disposable income will be able to put more aside. But acting like there is no impeding pensions cliff coming is dangerous in the extreme. In 30 years time more than 50% of the population will be over 65

Good luck with them on that.

They have very little experience of directing big spend in a jurisdiction that mostly depends on running its own economy. Up here it's hand outs, and even then they still managed to struggle . They are targeting nurses wages in the south while blocking it up here

Is it because he though he should get some of the Covid help because he could no longer claim travel expenses.

She was doling out COVID cash to sports organisations without taking looking at bank balances or cash reserves.

RCD was facing a £900k and received £1.5m which effectively gave it the same profit as it had been making the previous 3 years!

It was for loss of earnings so if RCD provided false evidence then they should be taken to task over it.

Cash reserves probably should have bearing but I know of self employed lads, bar owners getting covid grants and they weren't asked about their reserves either.

You can be sure that if there is any public money being spent that there is a large amount of chicanery going on and that a fairly large percentage of it will be spaffed uselessly. The circumstances of the pandemic only served to inflate that percentage of waste.

And if anyone ever again votes for that dick that complained about not getting travel expenses they deserve all they get as he is clearly a complete gouger of the lowest order.

The report highlighted there was no requirement to consider reserves or bank balances held by clubs or organisations applying for funding.

Royal County Down Golf Club's grant was the largest paid under the scheme and was reported by the BBC's The Nolan Show.

"In this case we noted that the accounts, which were submitted with the application, showed that at December 2019 Royal County Down Golf Club had a very significant bank balance and a high level of reserves," the report found.

'Pace of deployment'
The grant also underwrote the club's profits from previous years, auditors said.

"While this underwriting of profits is likely to have been unintended, the fact it has happened was not an appropriate use of public spending," the report found.

"As an example of this, in the Royal County Down Golf Club application its accounts showed an average annual profit of £657,000 in the three years before Covid-19.

"In 2020-21 it projected a loss of £905,000 because of Covid-19.

"The grant payment made to it under SSF was £1,562,000, which not only paid for its projected loss for the year but returned it to the same profit level as in previous years".
