To the best of my knowledge, most of Europe thinks this is the right way to do things and many of our neighbours also pay much better pensions than we do.

And of course, by putting up the retirement age, it also makes things increasingly difficult for much younger people starting out. As I recall, there were well-developed proposals on the table during Thatcher's reign when very high unemployment was a major issue, to lower the retirement age specifically to deal with this.
All excellent counter-arguments.

Just goes to show what a thorny issue the whole thing is. I've a feeling it's something that will stumble along to some conclusion or other over time - as coming up with one overarching plan is almost bound to miss out one of the many variables.

Problem is the people we appoint to find the solution are politicians.

so he contributed for nearly 50 years yet never got a penny back in pension.

I reckon the system worked in the days when there were lots of people like my old man but it can't work now that every bugger thinks he or she should go to some fake "university" to do some utterly useless bollocks course and then goes on to live till he's f*cking 90.

Anyway I'm 66 , I've got two pensions and I've stopped smoking as I intend to be here living off the sweat of the young and foolish for a very long time.

I had the Labour candidate knock on my door the other week. I told him that as far as I'm concerned none of the mainstream can address the issues that face us. I am going to protest vote.

I'd like to know how many of those "one-in-five men" have medical and/or psychological conditions that may prohibit interaction with the opposite sex, for example?

Ultimately VR won't replace the touch or scent of a real woman - on the other hand the VR woman won't tell you how "she" only likes you as a friend...
I'm still hoping someone will manage to build a really good Gillian Anderson sexbot that I can afford to buy and keep in the cupboard for those occasions when I'm home alone, a bit bored and have the desire to power it up.

Fox News fires Bob Beckel for 'making an insensitive remark' to black employee

Fox News on Friday announced that it had fired "The Five" co-host Bob Beckel for a remark he made to an employee of color.

"Bob Beckel was terminated today for making an insensitive remark to an African-American employee," a network spokesperson said in a short statement.

It wasn't immediately clear who would replace Beckel on "The Five" and Fox News did not provide details on the incident that led to his firing. Beckel was not immediately available for comment.

Douglas Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, lawyers handling a growing racial discrimination lawsuit filed by current and former Fox employees, said in a joint statement that Beckel told one of their clients, a black IT worker, that he was leaving the office while the employee serviced his computer because the employee is black. When the IT worker filed a complaint, Beckel attempted to intimidate him to withdraw it, Wigdor and Christensen said.

Of all the things to get fired over...what a dick-head...

Homes becoming too expensive. Here may be an explanation why.

Same problem in London - and spreading throughout the U.K.

I've posted before about the control of land use and ownership - (a view which explains why I dismiss Jeremy Corbin as far too right wing for me!) But seeing homes as an investment is something we should all be wary of when far too many are homeless or housed in poor conditions.

Hoping one day that the bough will break.
