FTSE 100 now above 7,000. Hopefully Labour will be kicked out of all areas in 2022. We will all be rich.

Life is better when you have moved out of London and have a London Pension, 2 daughters, 2 sons in law 4 granddaughters and 2 doggies.

The question probably being’if you start a pension plan on your first day at work, how much will you be worth when you retire?’

These days probably not anywhere near as much as somebody with a final salary pension scheme. In fact given all the means testing you are probably better off having no savings or pension and letting the taxpayer keep and bury you when you finally get to retire at 97 (by current trends).

I must say I will never forgive Brown for his pension raid, nor those like Green who robbed pension funds
