Although it's 20 years away, it's vital to give ample notice to those affected so that they can plan their futures.

Mmmm; judging by the uptake of workplace pensions, or more correctly the lack of uptake, it would appear the majority of people in the UK do not plan past next weekend.

The problem is that the stigma of the old nationalised industries persists, I note in Europe ( sorry to mention that place) that many industries and services are publicly funded, are efficient and achieve good VFM and are highly rated by the population. Why couldn't we do thatrathet than leave things to the market? 😎

ZedZed you seem to have lost the plot, in what universe does someone pay for a "premium" seat for himself and not for the other half.

It would take a braver man than me to do it. ::) ::) ::)

That is why all utilities should be renationalised, any expenditure needed could be done at a lower interest rate than what is available to the private sector. And we get to keep profits, not shareholders. Simple!


I remember when they were, and believe me w do not want that again.

From The BBC yesterday.

"Six million men and women will have to wait a year longer than they expected to get their state pension, the government has announced.
The rise in the pension age to 68 will now be phased in between 2037 and 2039, rather than from 2044 as was originally proposed."

Now is it me, or would you have thought with all thats is going on in The UK anyone would have the time to think about this let alone work out the costs? it is not for another 20 years, there could be 5/6 different governments by then, surely there are more pressing matters that need attention?

Easy, 2001 and 2005.
Now borrowing in 2017 is back to 2008 levels, but still more than the 2001 and 2005 governments.
I don't think any government has ever run a surplus, we have always run a deficit.
Probably always will as borrowing at a very cheap rate is available to governments.

Hi Bedouin the difference is that Jet2 do not deliberately split couples up. i accept that if the plane is nearly full when checking in split seats are inevitable.
ZedZed you seem to have lost the plot, in what universe does someone pay for a "premium" seat for himself and not for the other half. Both seats were bought at the standard price and if the back row seats had been vacant I would happily have joined the missus there but they wern't.
Other than being near to the front door the so called premium seats seem to be identical to those on the rest of the plane excluding the door seats.
Maybe the buses should take note of O'Leary's policy with premium seats near the door.

Many thanks,

Same info that I have found.

Will update as soon as I find out anything.
