Commenting on the state pension age announcement, Public and Commercial Services union general secretary Mark Serwotka said:

“Bringing forward the increase in the pension age is another sign of failure from the Tories whose handling of the economy over the last seven years has been disastrous.

“Just this week a study linked a slow-down in improvement in life expectancy to spending cuts on health and social care, yet the Tories are forcing people to work longer before they can retire.”

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
