Dear ICBP Supporter,
 
Recently we advised you of a change in our PR agency in the U.K..  Part of this reason was because we felt the need for new ideas and a fresh approach.  

One of the first initiatives is a new website which you can see here  www.endfrozenpensions.org

As a supporter of our campaign to put an end to the UK Government’s unjust position on ‘frozen’ overseas British pensions, we now need your help. Working with these new advisers, we have renamed the campaign ‘End Frozen Pensions’ and we are about to begin a new huge push to put pressure on the Government.

To this end we have started a petition on our new website.  This is a petition ‘with a difference’ as it includes an option to email your Member of Parliament if you are based in the UK or email the UK Prime Minister if you are based overseas. Even if you have already signed up as a supporter of our campaign, PLEASE sign up on this new website too. The emails generated will encourage Members of Parliament to meet with campaign representatives or urge the Prime Minister to end this unfair policy. All you have to do is input your basic details and click ‘send’ on a suggested text that we have written. It will take no more than 30 seconds: the same time it takes to brush your teeth or boil a kettle. The more signatories the greater the impact. The greater the impact, the greater the pressure on the British government and the more likely we are to get justice for over 520,000 overseas pensioners.

Finally: please share this petition as far and wide as possible among family and friends. Share it by Facebook, Twitter, email, smoke signal, telegraph, letter, word-of-mouth and more. Every extra sign up and email generated makes our campaign stronger. Every last one. We would really appreciate you signing it and encouraging as many others to do so as well. Here is a short message that you can copy and paste to share with others.

Dear   

On my behalf, please sign this petition to help end the UK Government’s unjust, unfair and arbitrary overseas ‘frozen’ pensions policy. This policy means that British pensions who live abroad in the majority of Commonwealth countries do not have their pensions increased in line with inflation and so their real value falls year-on-year.  This is leading to suffering and poverty. ‘Frozen’ pensions affect over 520,000 overseas British pensioners around the world. Please GO TO our website  www.endfrozenpensions.org sign the petition, and use the option to email your Member of Parliament if you are based in the UK, or email the UK Prime Minister if you are based overseas. These emails will encourage Members of Parliament to meet with campaign representatives and urge the Prime Minister to end this unfair policy. All you have to do is input your basic details and click ‘send’ on a suggested text that we have written. It will take no more than 30 seconds: the same time it takes to brush your teeth or boil a kettle.

Finally: please share this petition as far and wide as possible among family and friends. Share it with Facebook, Twitter, email, smoke signal, telegraph, letter, word-of-mouth and more. Every person who signs up will make a difference. Every last one. I would really you signing it and the encouraging as many others to do so as well.

The new campaign is also urgently looking for case studies. If you are happy to be featured on new our website as a case study please send over a good quality recent photo and 100 words on your frozen pension story to campaign@endourpain.org.

Regards
