We’ve extended their retirement age until after they die

After a rather pointless strike the Government takes stock of the situation.

“Yesterday we all huddled together in the war room and waited for something catastrophic to happen.  But guess what! Nothing did. We’re not sure what we were expecting, perhaps a big hole to open up in the ground or an explosion somewhere but what we got was about exciting as the time I accidentally had a conversation about my neighbour’s guttering."

“As a result of the profession's somewhat laughable attempt at industrial action we’ve decided to extend their retirement age until after they die. I don’t think the public will really notice but doctors will be forced to spend more time in the consulting room and it’ll make it even more difficult for them to whinge on about their pensions. What’s that?...The smell? …..Have you never heard of a Glade plug in?”
