  • The government shouldn't have fought this

    With the baby boomers all about to drop out of the tax-giving group and into the tax-receiving one, the government should welcome anyone who wants to stay in the former group for longer, not fight their right to do so.

    There is a booming trade in activity holidays, treks in the Andes, etc aimed at the retired that suggests that many thousands of them are far, far from the knacker's yard yet. Why force them out of the taxbase?

  • I totally agree with the "Dismayed's" comment;
    The government is introducing a policy of increasing the retuirement age towards 70years. It therefore seems very unlikely that they will be able to prove that forcing current workers who wish to continue working to retire at 65 is in the national interest.
    This case will then prove to have been a huge waste of money when the government could have got this advice and changed their policy to match their own long-term aims.
