Pointless pension rise


sir – As I approach my 80th birthday, a letter from the Department for Work and Pensions informs me that I am entitled to an increase to my state pension of 25 pence a week.

I can only assume that those making these decisions are either stupid or out of touch, as administer­ing this system must cost 10 times more than the amount distribute­d.
