GORDON Brown last night signalled that Labour would carry on pouring taxpayers’ cash into the yawning public-sector pensions black hole, telling nurses’ leaders: “Your pensions are safe with us.”

The Prime Minister, speaking at the Royal College of Nursing annual conference in Bournemouth, said his party was committed to defending final-salary pension schemes for state workers despite a funding deficit many experts estimate to be more than £1trillion.

Mr Brown was given a standing ovation for his speech in which he told the conference that Labour wanted to “fight for the NHS”.
