  • ” However, there were 61,000 fewer retired people below the age of 65, the ONS said, suggesting fewer Britons felt they could afford to retire early in the curent climate. ”

    There are several part-retired people where I work, this was not the case before 2008 when people just retired and let new blood into the workplace.

    One thing I picked up on in the comments section was that the benefits system could not react quick enough to temporary jobs so people who are not illegible for benefits are picking up these jobs (low skilled jobs going to foreign workers)

    That’s been the case for as long as I can remember.

    It’s called the British Malaise and the symptoms are “do as little as I can, for maximum reward”

    Wherever there are hand-outs, there are hands. Labours benefit policies, just created more scroungers on top of the deserving. This in parallel to the immigration policy, or lack off, just increased the number of jobs going to eu citizens. Money drain from uk, when sent home.

    Lack of finances for elderly resulting in having to take up part-time work, to subsidise pensions. One of the many benefits of Tesco is the employment of so many shelf stackers. Mostly grey haired in my local store. However, even fewer jobs for the youth of today.

    Charity does begin at home. So more immigration regulation, and fewer social benefits. Then give it 10yrs to really take affect.
