How to win on pensions



Sun Tzu tells us the most important aspect of war is to know your enemy. But our enemy isn’t Andrew Lansley, and it isn’t even David Cameron. No, it’s George Osborne. And he is after your money.

The only effective action now is to cut off the supply of money. If all doctors suspend their NHS contributions, the £2bn surplus disappears and the Treasury will panic – and if you suspend your contribution now, you can rejoin within five years under the same conditions. The only effective action revolves around money – anything else will fail.
