State retirement age should be based on the physical and mental demands of certain occupations. How are we supposed to reduce youth unemployment when we are forcing senior citizens to work till they drop?
In France last week they were on the streets protesting about a rise in pension age..........in the UK nothing.
They wonder why people aren't bothered about getting a pension, we are never going to reach it
They should start means testing the state pension would save billions. Upper and middle class are on lucrative private pensions that’s why they retire at the earliest opportunity 50ish and live the life of luxury. Don’t be greedy refuse the state pension.
Jarret in France working class is big!!! ,unfortunately in a Uk much smaller The bigest group in a UK is the one on benefits, cut benefits and you will see real protest 😆
I don't anticipate to get a state pension by the time I retire. People that have saved dilligently into a workplace or private pension won't get anything from the state either, I bet as it will be means tested.
Bruce Downey is wrong. People paying NI are entitled to their State pensions. With greater life expectancy, it is not unreasonable to alter retirement ages. We do appear to have too many people on benefits and bogus asylum seekers.
Bruce Downey I agree but they should means test all benefits I don't see why wealthy people should be allowed to claim free taxpayer funded Mutability cars as this is a benefit that is not means tested.
