WASPI women set for DWP compensation 'solution' in next '100 days'

WASPI women have set out a timetable for compensation from the Department for Work and Pensions. The DWP is under pressure to payout eye-watering £3,000 sums in compensation to women affected by State Pension payment "injustices" in the wake of an Ombudsman report earlier this year.

Campaign chair, Angela Madden, told the i newspaper: "The solution needs to be started within the first 100 days of the new Government. We will be making a fuss." Ms Madden said: "We are grateful to the many candidates in all parties who have responded positively, but a new Government needs to move from warm words to concrete actions.

"With one WASPI woman dying every 13 minutes, we will be using our votes to demand justice for all those who have been so badly let down." On the WASPI Facebook page this week, numerous women are calling on the UK's political leaders to do more as "one woman dies every 13 minutes" while waiting on DWP compensation.

Elizabeth Sidney said: "Women fought and died for us to have the right to vote so make sure you do ladies, even if it’s a protest vote. The fight for Waspi goes on." Jenny Gregory added: "I wrote to both parties but they didn’t have the courtesy to reply which has been frustrating."

Dawn Tok explained: "I wrote to them all. No response of course but an email response to say 'with election under way blah blah blah' but at least they have my emails." Elaine Wright shared: "I got a lovely email straight back from the Lib Dem candidate saying it's in their manifesto and he will definitely support it."

The woman made their voices heard on social media as the country heads to the polls to vote in the General Election today (Thursday July 4).
