From London’s Financial Times July 25th 2017
"A report by Australia’ Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says Canberra will push London to increase the pensions of 250,000 retired Britons living in Australia in line with inflation.
The UK index links the state pension for all retirees living in Britain, and some of those living overseas. However, in most Commonwealth countries, including Australia, the UK state pension is not increased in line with inflation after it is initially paid.
This has prompted Canberra to make top-up payments estimated at A$200m ($159m) a year."
We are starting to get traction with the Australian Government. The UK Government is off balance dealing with the mess they have created over BREXIT. Suddenly they are showing an interest in the very Commonwealth countries they abandoned when they joined the EU. Australia, Canada and the other 'old' Commonwealth countries have never been in a stronger negotiating position - and they know it!
