I wonder what people thought of this?

It gives you an idea of how much we all pay towards public sector pensions:

Perhaps it should be pointed out that public sector employees pay a contribution towards their pensions AND normal National Insurance

Hi, you're right but it's also true that private sector employees pay towards their pension and normal NI. They're also generally in poorer quality schemes than those in the public sector.

Did asnyone see this in the Express yesterday. It seems the poor old Pensioners are to be penalised yet again.

When is someone going to prosecute the Daily Express under the Trade Descriptions Act for it's completely inaccurate masthead.

THIS guy is a idiot he's killing this country, as if he's NOT done enough, most Pensioners have worked all there lives & paid tens of thousands in tax's so why should they be kicked in the groin like this? i cant wait for the election ive yet to come accross someone thats in favour of him, The only thing i can see posative from him his he created the Working Tax Credits BUT as is Gordon Brown he gives it in one hand then waits for the "CREDIT" then him & his phoney's take it out of the other,Good Riddence!!

As a pensioner who worked in the private sector the Express story sickened me. Then I read this:

Put the two side by side and it shows just what kind of people are ruling this country.

No doubt Alan14 will have some facetious comment to make about the Daily Mail as well!

Just not reading it should satisfy your dissatisfaction...

They're all the same though, you just have to sift through any bias.

What nonsense.

This is not new, the plain fact of the matter is there are a number of people who should have been paying tax who have not been. We are all responsible for ensuring we pay the correct amount of tax and it's not rocket science to add up income and deduct allowances.

The truth is there have been those who probably think they have been clever to get away with it now they are rumbled.

I see this as no different from people driving cars without paying road fund license and other tax evasion tactics. Please don't fall for the sympathy trap, I believe most tax evaders knew exactly what they were doing.

We'd rather not have the £23 a week. Because of that we lose out about £75 per week of other allowances.

I agree with what you the guy's a plonker of the highest kind.
