Thread Name: BS: Whither now England?
Subject: RE: BS: Whither now England?
It's my understanding that British pensioners resident in another country don't get their state pension increased with inflation. Previously it was just those resident in non-EU countries that got heir pensions frozen, but I'm sure I read that the current government extended it to all countries.I think the argument (spin?) was that those not living in uk are not affected by uk inflation. Can anyone confirm this?

So this would presumably affect the not insignificant number of British pensioners who have retired to Scotland, if the split happens.
