General Election: Should WASPI women believe Labour pledge to give them £15k – who pays?

“So, they would need even more than their £80billion tax rises if they wanted to cover that.

“The other, I suppose, is just a statement of priorities or decisive lack of priorities, because there’s so much money for so many things, but they’re not finding money, for example, to reverse the welfare cuts for genuinely poor people of working wage.

“Whilst some of these Waspi women really have suffered hardship as a result of not realising that this pension age increase is happening, although it was announced back in the early 1990s, many of them are actually quite well off.”

This was echoed by Conservative minister Nicky Morgan, who told the BBC “there isn’t the money available” to compensate the Waspi women.
