Well done Brian, that's 100 a week towards the running of the country.


And I have a final salary pension, but I'm far from rich, people seem to forget that a final salary pension is only based on the final salary, not the same as.

If a lawyer helps a guilty man avoid conviction ... does that make him a good lawyer? 😏

It must surely have been employment consultant. He must have loved the job too as he is still giving out free advice to the disadvantaged.

Life-long civil servant unless I miss my guess.
The trouble with our politics is that it puts power into the hands of those most likely to abuse it.

I gave out free advice for health tonight. I told a homeless lady to give up smoking as well as get a job.
A friend of mine who works for the NHS trying to stop people smoking said some people are spending 4,000 a year on cigarettes. That money could be put in to a pension.

If they spend 4000 a year on smoking they probably won't live to draw a pension.

I can't see why Brian is moaning - if they weren't paying all that tobacco tax then the taxman would be taking an even bigger slice of his pension.

Perhaps he had an 00 number and is prevented from further disclosures - The names 'Branflake - Brian Branflake'!

And when he was captured by Dr Evil, he'd talk endlessly about pensions until Dr Evil's head exploded.

I see Brian more as a sort of Pension Advising Superhero.
His arch enemies would be the likes of Robert Maxwell, Philip Green, Equitable Life etc, but of course he would need an appropriate outfit along with a suitable logo.
