Thanks Bastian for the idea on how to spend all my extra private sector pension.
Your last letter gave me an idea on how to use it for the benefit of the nation............ask to pay more income tax as in the 60's the basic rate was 32%.
Stop carping you've never had it so good.

The combination of previous posts on this issue have covered just about all valid points so I'll not add to them, other than to say that the public sector really do need to get to understand what is going on financially throughout the world, let alone the UK. The private sector have, since 2008, been experiencing all the so called problems that the public sector appear to believe is being visiting upon them alone.
Stop blaming the banks, who admittingly did play a large part in the problems, and accept that this is where we are now and we have to labouriously dig our way out of it. Don't attempt to sweep under the carpet the disgraceful record of 13 years of labour administration and outrageous spending. Do not forget the note they left for the incoming Government, "There is no money left".
When the current Government have solved a major part of the problems they will get voted out and Labour will be back in to get us into another financial mess and so the wheels of Government keep turning, oiled by us the electorate. What fools we are!!!

Public debt when labour came to power £6billion, when they left £892 billion. Bank bail out costs £220 billion. It ain't rocket science folks, blame Gordon and the Scottish mafia for your pension cuts and redundancies. Someone has to be a grown up and sort it out children

they are suggesting that the banks were right,the government should have let them crash,taking all our savings,little as they are,and our pay that was entrusted to the bank so we could pay them back the morgage we owe etc...but then we would have lost our homes because technically they belong to the bank until we pay back all we owe them and so they would have been considered as assets in the audit.You know what,that wasn't an unnessary debt,was it.

Yes, spending was so 'outrageous' that the Tories said they would stick to Labour's spending plans - until the banks (that's THE BANKS) dragged us to the edge of the abyss.
