By Maid of Kent – According to a survey published by retirement income specialists MGM Advantage, 36 percent of over-65s have no idea when they will be able to afford to retire, with that number increasing to 50 percent in London.
Commenting on the results of the study of 1,607 adults, a director of MGM Advantage said that it is staggering that so many people over the age of 55 were failing to take even the most basic financial steps to provide for their retirement.
With the emphasis on the lack of responsible planning by British workers who have failed to get to grips with their finances in order to provide for their own retirement, the survey falls short by omitting any mention of why British workers approaching retirement age and over cannot afford to stop working.
While the mainstream media published the biased results of a survey by a financial institution, they failed to point the finger of blame at the real causes of the collapse of the pensions of British workers.
Assuming that their readers have short-term memories or can be brainwashed into believing that the financial inability to retire is the fault of people who have worked hard all their lives, the MSM remains silent about the policies pursued by the Lib/Lab/Cons which have directly caused this pensions crisis.
With their aim of promoting these political parties as the only sensible choice for government and ‘opposition’, the MSM will not allow the facts of their incompetence, dishonesty and perverted ideology to see the light of day.
While the Lib/Lab/Con lies that immigrants would pay for our pensions were exposed some years ago, with the result that the MSM never mentions this pro-mass-immigration propaganda, they equally never mention the fact that the mass immigration of largely unskilled people from the Third World has cost such staggering sums that the money that would have paid for British workers’ pensions has all been spent on the support and welfare of the people supposedly imported to pay for those pensions.
The Lib/Lab/Cons and their MSM enablers continually seek to support their mass immigration policies by praising the enterprise, vitality and prosperity that immigrants from Third World countries have brought to Britain, while cynically avoiding the truth exposed by job shortages, high unemployment, downward-spiralling wages, ever-rising prices caused by over demand, and an unaffordable welfare state, which with the infrastructure of Britain, is on the point of collapse.
There is not one job in Britain currently filled by an immigrant or the British-born descendants of immigrants that could not be done by an indigenous British worker if they had been given the appropriate education and training. To think or say otherwise is nothing short of racism. That successive Lib/Lab/Con governments have failed to give our children the education and training is their failure, a criminal failure when the Third World countries that provide immigrants to Britain can manage to educate and train their people.
The Lib/Lab/Con-supporting MSM also fails to mention the destruction of private pension plans by Gordon Brown’s tax grab which overnight decimated the pension plans of millions of responsible and hardworking British people. Currently estimated to have cost these pension plans a staggering £160 billion, it can come as no surprise that many pension plans have collapsed with the result that British workers who thought that they faced a comfortable retirement now face one of severe impoverishment.
But never mind, Gordon wanted that money to splash the cash on the imported Third World populations that Labour needed to increase their election chances.

On the subject of successive Lib/Lab/Con governments stealing the pensions of British workers in order to provide the funds for their own pet projects, these same governments manage to find £billions every year for Foreign Aid and find many £billions more to bail out countries in the Eurozone, even though Britain has no obligation to do so.
But they cannot find the money to give British workers a decent pension.
While British workers have to work until they drop, it may be of comfort to know that many Greek workers can retire at 50 with a very generous pension based on their final salary – and we are helping to pay for it.
Equally, these same corrupt governments can afford to continually finance the Human Rights fiasco whereby foreigners who have no right to be in our country can claim abuse of their rights if they are not allowed to stay here, or even to come in the first place.
Hence we have the sickening scenario of an immigrant claiming the ‘human right’ to bring her 58-year-old non-English-speaking husband to Britain – the legal fees paid for by those same retirement-age workers who cannot afford to retire.
When this 58-year-old non-English-speaking immigrant is allowed the human right to come to our country – which we all know will happen – he will be unable to work and will be supported by British workers who cannot afford to stop working themselves.
How twisted is this ideology which gives foreigners the right to come to Britain to be supported by British people who should be enjoying their retirement after a lifetime of work but must work until they drop to support foreigners?
Aside from the cruel immorality of forcing tired, and sometimes sick, British workers to work past retirement age in order to survive in high-cost and high-taxed Britain, the equally cruel and immoral circumstances mean that the past-retirement-age workers are occupying jobs that our young people desperately need in order to survive now and to financially plan for their own retirements.
Hardworking British people will rightfully feel aggrieved when they have spent a lifetime in work, paying high taxes to fund the welfare costs of the feckless and work-shy, and to pay the enormous costs associated with mass immigration and benefits for the world, to then be castigated for not being financially responsible enough to plan for their retirement.
The hard facts are that, due to successive Lib/Lab/Con policies, British workers pay such high taxes and high living costs that there is nothing left to save or put towards a pension. They have financed the multicultural fantasy, the ‘welfare for all’ fantasy and the human rights fantasy to find that none of these Marxist ideals applies to them when they need it.
Assuming that successive British Lib/Lab/Con governments have been – and still are – swimming in cash, indicated by their generosity to every foreigner on earth, not to mention the life-long benefits support of those who prefer not to work, these British workers naturally thought that there would be plenty left for the people who provided the funds for this ’easy life’ fantasy land through their taxes so that they could eventually retire from a life of grind.
Millions of them are waking up to the hard reality of life under the Lib/Lab/Con Marxists – British workers can only participate in the fantasy when they pay the bills, otherwise they are of no use to the criminal ideological perverts in Westminster.
In this modern Lib/Lab/Con fantasy land of Britain, the indigenous people either cannot get a job or, if they are ‘lucky’ enough to be employed, they can never afford to retire because they are expected to fund the lives of billions of others.
Perhaps when the hardworking British public realise that they will have to work until the age of 85 in order to finance the easy lives of foreigners and the British feckless and work-shy they may decide to vote for the only political party which is on their side – the British National Party.
