Blimey!! two posts in a day - I'll have to go and have a lie down, I'm working too hard. Anyway, back to the post...apparently Cameron is determined to make the most loyal supporters lose faith: Armed Forces must wait five years longer for pension - Telegraph Soldiers, sailors and airmen may have to give as much as 23 years’ service before being able to leave with their pensions, up from as little as 18 years at present. The result would be that the effective minimum age for leaving the Services with an immediate pension would increase from 40 to 45. . Under the current scheme of compulsory redundancies will anyone serve long enough to receive a full pension? Is it me or are they wanting to hand the next election to Labour on a plate?
