Thanks Kat.

One of the problems is that the use of statistics used "modified" to suit the situation.

For instance the present Government claim that all Public service workers get gold plated pensions is really not true.

The figur quoted below of £4000 per annum is very low by any standards. I have seen £5000 quoted but hell that is low too. Mt State pension is higher than that !!!

The gold-plated figur includes senior management and executive staff who will receive from £50000 per annum.

These are not the people who have been selected to have their pensions cut.

As usual in all the political issues we are never actually comparing apples with apples.
