Former Ford/Visteon workers protested outside Downing Street on Wednesday of last week. They marked three years since bosses sacked 600 workers at three Visteon sites with no notice and no redundancy money.

The former Ford workers in Belfast, Enfield in north London and Basildon in Essex occupied their plants and forced Ford to pay redundancy money. But the former workers are still fighting major cuts to their pensions.

John Hickey was on the protest. “I’d been retired three months when I lost part of my pension,” he said.

“Pensioners everywhere are now getting such a raw deal. The government’s hitting us every way they can.”
