Why is nothing posted yet regarding these filthy rich public servants with bomb proof pensions.

How dare you come on the forum Ducatipete and criticise a brother from the public sector.

Went in to school hill surgery today and it seemed business as usual. Still, I'd swap my proposed pension for theirs

You're making the usual extreme right-wing mistake - being a bit of a thicko.

If their pensions are, as you claim, 'bomb proof', then why are they striking over their pensions?
They are right to fight a government that is trying to change the terms of their employment.

Interesting to note this week that two of the doctors at River Lodge surgery are going away on a "sabbatical" this summer. Presumably on full salary. I have been asked to attend a general review, and went to book an appointment. The earliest is in September.
i do not wish to knock this surgery as they are very good; but this sort of thing makes a mockery of the NHS paid for by my past National Insurance contributions.

I think you will find that GP sabbaticals are either training or unpaid, and locums will be appointed in their place. You don't actually want doctors who are too busy to keep their knowledge up-to-date, or too burnt out.
However, River Lodge (agree they are generally very good) does not seem to provide enough sessions currently to treat all its patients promptly. They do need to provide more medical sessions - either by taking on more partners or each working more sessions in the week.
Who to blame? Under the last government GPs had to see their patients promptly, but that was one of the "useless NHS targets" swept away by the current lot a couple of years ago. Clue: Mrs Lansley is a GP.

GP's are right to protect their terms of emplyment and their contributions to their pensions.
If the previous "waste of space" government had not left this country in such a mess, their would be no reason for people to be feeling the hardships they are now experiencing.
It's just typical - Labour rape this country and the tories always get the blame for rectifying the situation. When will the idiot Brits realise this?

Labour had served their purpose in the last century, to bring equality to the working man, and should have been finished after the winter of discontent in 1979. Unfortunately the British electorate have short memories. Add to that the fact that older voters die and younger ones with less experience of life come on the scene, and sooner or later the failed experiment of socialism rears its ugly head again. I hope we have seen the last of this situation.

Jim, what socialism? What socialist policies did your precious Labour introduce thats left the country in such a mess?

In reply to Expat Two, it was encouraging the rise of the abuse of trade union power in the seventies. Did you know that Labour wanted to nationalise the banks and building societies if they had won the 1979 election? The next time in power, from 1997, although they distanced themselves from the S-word, they encouraged those who chose not to work with a generous benefit system. Unfortunately we are now reaping the rewards of their misguided policies.

That's absolute rubbish. They distanced themselves from the S-word because they were no longer socialists and adopted Tory policies. I'm not aware of any single benefits increases, beyond inflationary. and they did exactly what Murdoch wanted when they curtailed Union influence. I think they were a bigger danger to the left than the Conservatives.
So, please, enlighten us all - what did the Tory Labour traitors do to make the benefit system more generous? What increases? What relaxation of rules? Anything accepted.
