In real terms, the State pension was reduced by €9 per week over the last five years.
It increased by €25 per week over the previous five years under a different administration. Classifying the recent €3 per week adjustment as an increase is rather disingenuous.
Voters should bear this in mind when marking their scorecard in the ballot box at the next election.
Their ballot is transparent unlike the Taoiseach’s Ministerial annual scorecards.
