I am 77 years old, and have to take medication to keep my blood thin
Although we live in a sunny climate, we are still humane beings, & have paid our dues to England during our adults lives,so its only fair that we get the same as a person living in U.K

Hi,
This is really a nice article and we should try Dr Segal's compression socks for all winters.

My husband and myself worked solidly in all the years we lived in U.K.We payed everything that was expected of us and were never out of work. We retired to Cyprus in 2004. Yes it does get cold here and we should be entitled to our winter fuel allowance.

Bring this back, we paid for this over the years. You are sending money overseas all the time to people who have never paid into the system, family allowance, tax credits etc. to people in the E.U.

It gets very cold here and we do need to put our heating on for a good 5 months of the year, How dare the British Government decide its not cold enough, do they live here. As we get older our body doesn't store the heat the way it used to 20 years ago,

Winter temperatures in northern rural France are definitely less than in many parts of the UK. This rule is not only unjust but illogical for most parts of France
