This is pure bribery.
I can pay my own way in life.
Well our parents pensions were a burden on us when we were younger!
My father died before he was old enough for state pension, so there was no return for the NI he paid or what I paid when working full time all my working life.
I have no children, yet I have paid towards the education of other people's children.
Can you explain to me why our children shouldn't have to pay towards our generation's pensions?
You often let us know that you have a good income, but many aren't so fortunate! You also told us that both your children went to work abroad, so I wonder how much they have contributed towards pensions in this country?
