    it on the bbc recently and I listen to it all the time; wonder how happy those over 65 will be feeling due to the granny tax that this government is putting in? I know that the disabled elderly are not particularly happy as carer services are being cut all over London and those in care homes are in quite a mess.

    I can assure you that once the rest of the austerity measures put in by this gov't come into play (and I believe that was a few days ago) that the happiness scale for the UK will be dropping like a hot potato; unless of course they fudge the stats ... having spent quite some time talking to people in the east end of London, we are not looking at a secure population and that is before the majority of the measures bite.
