        I’m actually trying to second guess the age I will be officially become an OAP and claim my state pension. I the Tory’s win the next election, its quite possible it will be 88!

            Not a bad idea and the French seem to have more guts than us!

                I’ve got my 35 years in for full state pension, but doubt I’ll see much of it, will probably be 72 by the time I can claim it.

                  I was told, not sure if it’s true, that when they first planned parking restrictions within Paris there was, as expected, outcry. So when the government needed to recruit traffic wardens not a single person applied so they had to scrap the plan. Liberté, égalité, fraternité

                      Something needs to be done, whether through French style protests a revolution or other. The government/s need putting in their place or they will continue to railroad over us on a whole host of stuff, not just pensions. Given France is our closest neighbour our government/s are well aware of whats going on there and know doubt laugh at us soft fools, knowing they will get away with 99% of what they do!

                          yes we need to stop this govt in its tracks, although its new ‘russian’ laws will make it difficult; not that that would stop our FRENCH COUSINS.. more power to their elbow.

                                                Not sure whether to go potato skins (from scratch) or over rice that I only seem to enjoy here
