He actually did me some good with some of his other  grandstanding such as reducing the ni contribution needs for women and making any year when child benefit was paid count as a contribution year. That probably improved my wifes pension. He was still the worst prime minister we've ever had until May stole that from him.

Farty, i know your really old and allowances need to be made
but George Brown never was PM... i think he might have made it to Foreign Sec
but not the big chair, he might have been too drunk too often
might you mean Gordon? the vicars son?

George Brown was always pіssed, I had to take evasive action when his car lurched across to my side of the road when I was visiting relatives in South Derbyshire in the 1970s.

As I recall he was less than happy to receive my torrent of abuse which I hurled at him, which included calling him a pіssed-up newark.

He was in the running for Labour leader along with Harold Wilson, so it was a choice between a drunk & a crook, with Wilson the crook winning.

Anyway he was the one responsible for the stuff I've been rambling on about.

The only time I ever voted Labour was to support a forlorn hope candidate who stood no chance against the Conservative who won as they always do in our constituency.  The latter was very popular locally and did a lot on peoples' behalf.  I went to hear the Labour chap and felt sorry for him as he was continually barracked by a contingent of Young Farmers and their ilk in the audience.  The candidate was a Lecturer at the LSE and was Ukrainian by birth.  After one provocative and sneering question as to whether he had ever served in the forces, he lost it and starting shouting back about his wartime service and the hardships he had undergone.  At this tirade, for which I did not blame him, George Brown who was supporting him on the rostrum, put his head in his hands and could be audibly heard muttering "Oh Dear!  Oh Dear!"  I always rather liked him but admit to seeing another side after reading Diasi's post.

I received my letter a couple of minutes ago & it'll be paid into our account sometime during the next three weeks.

What a waste of money sending all those letters.  Mine always comes after the money has gone into my account.
Everything I can't find is in a totally secure place.

Mine gets paid into my post office pension account.  I had not received my letter whereas 'er indoors already has her letter and payment.  In our main post office on Friday, one of the ladies behind the counter is always very friendly and I told her of this and she suggested I put my card in the machine and see if it was in, despite not have received a letter.  I was pleasantly surprised when she affirmed the money was in my account!
