Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

Re: Democracy in action...?

So my only wish is that the geriatric majority which brought us this vote takes the responsibility proportional to the way they voted. So when the emergency budget axe falls (and looking at the FTSE it will within 2-3 weeks), instead of raising taxes we FIRST: CUT the pensions; SECOND: CUT all treatment for diseases prevalent in the 60-90 population in the NHS; THIRD: CUT from the budget share for care services.

Well, given that pension age has already been raised due to insufficient funds in the pension pot before the current financial situation, it would not seem too far fetched to see triple lock axed for starters.
