The Raj giveth and the Raj taketh away
Traitor Blair and the Ignorant Jock have come to an agreement over linking state pensions to earnings. The link will be restored in 2012, not long after the next election.
So, how's this going to be paid for? Well, women and men will have to retire at the same age. The retirement age will also be increased to 68.
This isn't going to happen until 2012 though giving the Scottish Raj - particularly if the Ignorant Jock is Prime Minister - some excellent leverage in the next election.
