Charity needs should begin at home, Nick

GRANTHAM MP Nick Boles’ comments on the strikes this week is generally right.

Public sector workers get a better deal all round. Historically, Grantham was made up of large engineering companies in which people had very little chance of having good pension rights.

The workers had to pay large amounts of their wages in to pension funds, so why shouldn’t the public sector do the same?

Why give millions away in overseas aid when towns like Grantham are finding the going so tough?
