Apparently, judges give more to UK



Mr Cameron was questioned last week on why judges only pay 2% of their income to pensions. His reply was astonishing – he said it was in reflection for what they do for the country.

Every public-sector worker should be outraged, especially those of us who pay employers and employees pension payments of 21.5% and rising.

I think it may be time for all of us to withdraw from the Ponzi scheme we are effectively in and watch it collapse.

There is a solution that is Tory in the extreme. Freeze public-sector pensions and promised benefits tomorrow and hand over provision of pensions to one of their mate’s financial companies to give us a pension on the same basis as the private sector.

I suspect judges would then want to pay more than 2%.
