“I think the offer is fantastic and I’m sure there’s lots of other WASPI ladies out there who would agree with me”
May Rookes, the ‘WASPI’ woman who exposed Boris Johnson in yet another lie during last week’s BBC Question time leaders’ special, has spoken out about Labour’s plan to compensate 1950s-born women for the pension entitlement stolen from them by the government.
Ms Rookes skewered Johnson on the programme, forcing him to admit that he was not going to fulfil his promise made just in August to sort out the injustice – and she now says that having read Jeremy Corbyn’s plan, she thinks it is ‘a fantastic offer’ and is sure other WASPI women will agree with her.
And she is quite clear that she hopes Labour win’s the general election:
Ms Rookes’ assessment of her sisters-in-arms’ reaction seems to be correct. WASPI women in Derbyshire today sang ‘Oh Jeremy Corbyn‘ as the Labour leader arrived to speak to them – and universally praised both the plan and the man, even though BBC News withheld coverage of their musical welcome.
