REFERRING to more than one letter that has been printed in the Telegraph regarding old age pensioners, in a roundabout way, calling them fraudsters, it makes me feel ashamed to be part of this country where we do not respect our pensioners.

We are not all getting money to which we are not entitled, we are all diffferent.

Sometimes we feel like we can do a little bit, but most of the time we feel that we can't do anything. It is because most old age pensioners have illnesses which are variable and life-threatening with the nasty letters that have been printed in the paper, who needs terrorists in this country. God help us.
