New bid in auction for OAP votes

In a bidding war that would make even eBay proud, the Liberal Democrats are now offering another £100 a month for single pensioners over 75s, £140 for couples over 75, free personal care and will scrap the council tax, so that there is absolutely no chance that anyone over 65 pays for any of these policy measures either!!

Why anyone of working age should consider voting Liberal Democrat is now beyond me!! But then, only 34% of those in the 18-34 age group are certain to vote compared to 73% of the over 65s. Are the Liberal Democrats being opportunistic and bribing the voting electorate?
