Standing up for Manchester Withington

Jeff delivers petition on behalf of WASPI women

Manchester Withington MP Jeff Smith joined 180 MPs from all parties who submitted petitions to parliament from their constituents on behalf of the Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaign.

These petitions call for transitional arrangements to be put in place for all women born in the 1950s who have borne the burden of the changes to the State Pension Age.

Jeff said: ‘These women planned for the future and have been let down by this Government, who changed the rules with little notice or support.

The number of MPs representing their constituents by submitting a petition shows that this is not about party politics, but about ensuring that those women affected get a fair settlement.’

I am glad that you have shown some support for the WASPIs, but frankly, when you say ‘These women planned for the future and have been let down by this Government, who changed the rules with little notice or support." , you reveal the usual political cowardice of our age, i.e. that it’s some other party’s fault and nothing to do with your party. The fact that you do not bother even to try to interact with your constituents (I am one) is not to your credit either. It’s a shame, because your maiden speech in parliament suggested you had quite a lot to offer.
