Public Sector Pensions

From The Times August 26, 2009

Crunch time for council workers’ golden pensions

Leadership by Example? Not!

"John Denham, the Communities Secretary, is drawing up a series of proposals to overhaul the pensions of two million council workers, covering short, medium and longer terms."

We should see the MPs' scheme "overhauled" first. Then MEPs', then the top public sector jobs.

How about a cap on public sector pensions calculated as a multiple of the Basic State Pension?
