​NHS apologises as payments delayed due to rising retiree numbers

Comment

The erosion of pension protection and introduction of a system that will cause double taxation - on the way in and on the way out - has been one of the most enormous recent social changes. Social in its inevitable consequence for those workers caught up in it. The chancellor of course dismissed any worries as only affecting 1 % of the working population. So that makes it alright then as 99% of workers won,t have to pay.We must assume that the Govt has calculated the likely number of workers who will finish early - as a price well worth paying .If that is correct - then we are all meant to retire early.
