The terrible weather which came to us in France last February; was it so unusual? Some elderly Britons in particular who retired to the Continent suffered. But were they worse off than those who stayed in Britain? Is the winter climate at its worst, worse than any in Britain? The answer is, ‘yes’.
Successive nights last February brought temperatures of minus ten. Numbers of British elderly residents suffered from shortage of cash, frozen pipes and a cold heartless Government, too mean to care for its elderly citizens – too mean to even grant them the natural rights of any citizen. It is too mean to grant them a voice.
