    Not just pensioners but means test all benefits being paid by taxpayers.

    If we all knew and felt reassured that benefits were justified and deserved, we'd stop moaning about them!
    Receipt of undeserved social benefit is surely a crime as it's taking taxpayers' money under false pretences. Penalties however would need to be work related ( i.e.a contribution) not an expensive period in prison!
