LATER WITH JEWELS ALTMANN: Everybody’s friend on the way up

Sooner or later, she deserts the losers and embraces the winners

Most people think of Ros Altmann as the piece of work who knifed her way into Government, and then cut WASPI’s throat with it. But her past reveals how this precious stone has always sought the greener grass on the other side of the hill.


Cross-Party collaborator Ros ‘jewels’ Altmann turned the tables on her critics last night by at last explaining why Westminster MPs did up to but not including something useful about the pension dilemma for sixty years.


“Everyone was convinced that someone would drop the bomb and we’d all be killed anyway,” she smiled.


“Also,” she added, ” the average age of MPs framing the policy was 61. Research shows that 30% of them were pissed, 70% of them had inherited money, and 0% gaveAF because they’d be dead by the time it hit the fan anyway. We are all,” she concluded, “human”.


Perhaps Ros was being a little generous including herself in that definition, because Fleet Street is awash with rumours that Ms Altmann is in fact a Cyborg invented by De Beers to advertise their wares. A former investment banker, Ros loves watching Antiques Roadshow, drooling over jewellery, and occasionally selling herself as an exhibit. Her passionate hope is that one day she will achieve the reserve price, and be saved for the nation. It’s all part of her love for the Old, which isn’t always apparent, but must be true because it says so on her website:


Indeed, she was the UK Government’s Business Champion for Older Workers, and for her tireless efforts alongside Dave Cameo she was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2014 for Services to Pensioners and Pension provision. Before that she served as an adviser to Moral Tone when he was Prime Minister, and thus enjoys the unique accolade of having toiled mercilessly for two of the greatest money-grabbing, false and mendacious dissemblers in British political history.

However, it does seem that Rosalind is a little sketchy in her understanding of the loyalty thing. Having worked for Blair and joined the Labour Party, Gordian McDoom ensured they lost power, and Altmann joined the LibDems. When Napper Cleggover and his Men were annihilated, she joined the Tory Party….the least she could do really, as Dodgy Dave had just given her a gong and a seat in the Lords.

So anyway, Nigel Farage, you may hope as I do for the right result on June 23rd, but be careful what you wish for: a Brexit followed by a fall from power for the Pumped-Up one  will have Ros Altmann slithering all over you….pehaps in her evening job as Mistress Miriam, Baroness of Whiplash.

And let’s also remember just how steadfast Ros was when it came to those WASPI women: having supported them when it gave her pensions consultancy a high profile, on joining Camerlot, lots of well-informed people wondered why did she not fight the state pension age changes from within the government. Those doing the wondering included Citywire, Pension Life, The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, Savvywoman, MoneysavingExpert, Age UK, and Before It’s News….in fact, 1,700+ bloggers and mainstream news sites.

Astonishingly, there remain some within the ranks of WASPI who think Ros Altmann may yet come good. Forget it, girls: she went bad a long time ago.

  1. My wife and I joined a group of WASPI’s to met our local Tory MP last week. He would not give any support to the WASPI issue as ” there was no point as nothing would be achieved” and ” there is no money to pay these women” I asked how he could justify last years £75 Billion overspend as clearly there was also no money for £75b of government spending but he pretending not to understand my point. previously we have received Altmanns standard response to this issue. She added a handwritten additional note ” as you know, state pensions are a benefit not a pension fund so I’m afraid there is no more to add” Clearly she would have liked to add —” so f**k you” but perhaps even she though that might be a step too far. Our MP saw no problem is my wife’s taxes over 40 years paying for others pensions but her pension being delayed for 3 years and 8 months as there was no money.

  2. The Pension rip off has been known for decades, it is just getting harder and harder to find this money supposedly put aside when the money in fact miraculously disappeared into these kind of peoples pockets aided with a bit of QE to paper over the cracks. Even now the UK government changes the rules to ensure poverty and hardship for all because those in power used the intrument of UK government to rob us blind every way.

    Love her comment though…
    “Everyone was convinced that someone would drop the bomb and we’d all be killed anyway,”

    Well my duck, is that a justified admission that you felt it alright to thieve because the bomb would be dropped and we would all be dead? To inform you “the world did not end, you still stole and thieved under this self justification (your mind did think this way), that the only one that should end up dead now is you (like you expected for us all so nothing new there ay?)”.

    Best thing to do my duck is if dumb keep your mouth shut intentional thieving is best not mentioned when the world did not end or do you have that planned now?

    Final /sarc her championing for people to retire on a decent pension (off the wiki) is mutually incompatible with robbing them hoping a war will cover it all up. You could not make that comment up, guess another to add to the list … ex Rotschild bankster too so will have been taught well and at least not another ex-GS person because the world is rife with them.

    A tempting reason if any to STAY IN so we can identify and pernamently remove the house of lords as a wasteful tick the box expense the population cannot afford. Give that saving to the EU as downpayment on the next demand.

    Still not good enough, want the proper set of books for all nations in the EU so still BREXIT for me. Is no other condition.

  3. You now reduced to citing BeforeItsNews John ?

    You do realise this is a self proclaimed ” fauxsite” which means most stories are plants ?!

    The Sunday Sport online ole chum ……


  4. As Mhairi Black said recently, plenty of money for bombs to invade other countries, plenty of money to spend on the Houses of Parliament, but no money for the women who have been defrauded of their pensions.

  5. Altmann clearly has the social conscience of a dog on a croquet lawn, (to misquote Steve Bell at his best).


    Exactly. Amazing how infinite funds are always made available for the bombing of brown people in pursuit of Neocon objectives.

  6. Sort of related topic. BHA likely to be forced into administration. BHS’s pension deficit is £571m including the cost of an insurer buying the scheme out. The retailer last month started the process of moving the scheme, which has about 20,000 members, into the Pension Protection Fund, a government-backed lifeboat for the retirements plans of companies that fail. The pensioners will not be green with envy…..

  7. Altmann, like many others, is just another so-called public servant who puts her pearls before the swine who elected her. O/T but I was reading a newspaper editorial here in Normandy yesterday which showed, on the face of it, at least a healthy respect for the concept. I sometimes wonder if the French might again be the people to say “Assez, enfin!”. Many I speak to here think their current chefs to be cooking the books to the extent that the resulting flavour is unpalatable and the dish inedible.

  9. @ do for now. Nope it shouldn’t (post Maxwell) be feasible to take a dip. However Mar 2015 figures are out there so wtf went on?
    At the v least the fleshy midget P Green should be stumping up more than he’s offered so far, given he’s just bought a £100m yacht.

  10. Wouldn’t it be a shame if Philip Green had to dispose of his superyacht to top-up the BHS pension fund? As he claims to live on it he might become homeless and have to move move-in with his children on their superyacht!
