Get back to work!



No retirement for you!



Quote:
Retired people should be encouraged to do community work such as caring for the "very old" or face losing some of their pension, a peer has suggested.

Lord Bichard, a former benefits chief, said "imaginative" ideas were needed to meet the cost of an ageing society.

And although such a move might be controversial, it would stop older people being a "burden on the state".

I knew him when he was plain old Michael Bichard, a rising "star" in the upper Civil Service ranks. Thought he was an arrogant, self-centred sh*t then - nice to know he's living up to my estimation.

I presume the beginning of his name is pronounced "bitch"?
