I completely agree greeny - our football associations ought to refuse to pay and continue to do so. Let's see if FIFA has the bottle to ban us for respecting our dead.

I also think it is disgusting that they have been fined so much They should give the money to the British Legion. Also they should get there own house in order before dishing out such fines Fudge

Only a small percentage of women are getting the bus pass, just those who were born up to November 1954, the ones really affected by the pension change were born up to 1970, I'm nearly 63 and I'm not getting one from the new mayor, I have to wait another three years for my pension when I was told I would get it at 60, my pension age has been increased twice, it's very unfair.

I think it was caused by people who wanted to continue working so they changed the rules I can't under stand why people do it as there is plenty of organisation  that need members to help them. By the time people come to retire they will not want to join other things so they will eventually die out. So sorry you have to wait so long Vanessa Fudge

Currently in NZ the pension kicks in at 65 for everybody, it's not means tested which means you get it whether you want it or not. The pension also comes with a Seniors Card (Gold Card) which entitles the holder to free bus and subsidised train and ferry travel. The Gold Card is about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike where I live or soon to be where I used to live as Mrs Kiwi and I are about to embark an a whole new chapter in our lives and become Geriatric Gypsies or Grey Nomads once our new Motorhome arrives from OZ, we've handed our notices in and sold the house and are looking forwards to becoming people of no fixed abode for a few years  :) Can't wait to hit the road  8) 8) 8)
I'm convinced 90% of the software on my computer doesn't do anything except send me notifications that there's a new version of itself.
