The Conservatives can’t keep protecting the pensions triple lock at all costs

City AM

Deputy director Adam Hawksbee discusses the drawbacks of the pensions triple lock. He writes:

“The last decade in Westminster has seen many iron laws of politics tested, bent and broken. One rule, however, has remained unchallenged: protect pensioners at all costs.

The politics of the state pension triple lock are tricky for the government. People of pensionable age make up a sizable portion of the Conservative vote, and those who have shifted towards “don’t know” since 2019 are disproportionately of that demographic. But the conservative case against the triple lock is getting stronger by the day.”
