Why reform public sector pensions?
I feel I’ve been sorely misled. I thought the aim of reforming public sector pensions was to end the brutal “pensions apartheid” that so unjustly stains our nation. Instead it turns out, according to uber-Thatcherite think-tank reform, that it’s all designed to let private companies grab lucrative bits of the public sector for themselves while acting as a launch-pad for an attack on the really big injustice – the state pension. I’ll never trust them again.
