Subject: RE: BS: Public Sector skivers (UK)
I really do hope Bonzo is just winding people up as usual, because if he isn't I wonder what contact he has with reality.
The point that these "every man for himself" mouth foamers miss is that most people in the public SERVICE (my capitals) have worked for years for not enormous sums, knowing, or thinking, that they have a safe, but NOT gold plated, pension at the end of it. It's called a contract - isn't it?
A close relative of mine has given her career to the NHS since the age of 17, and is now nearly 60 and in a highly responsible position. A couple of years ago she had had her pension contributions increased and her retirement date put back - she reluctantly accepted this. Now, once more, she is faced with having to work longer for less pension, and pretty damn annoyed at being cheated by shysters like Cameron, Osborne and Maude. I note that THEY still have their gold plated final salary pension scheme and no doubt, nice big trust funds from Daddy. But of course, we're all in this together, aren't we George. George?
