Does anyone believe David wants your pension to create jobs? I think he might want it to prop up current public spending but could never say that as he might as well ask for one of your kidneys whilst he's at it.
Hmm, I think he wants it so he can ensure there are enough feathers in his own nest.
After all he is probably not intent on working right up until retirement, he's probably not put anything aside in a private pension (otherwise he would not be doing this), he thought .gov would keep paying, the cupboard is bear and his panicking.
He might also be underwater on a property or two, after all these new breed of socialists are more socialist of the little people, big fat pay cheques, personal wealth creation and other people pensions for him.
