I'm speechless

Oh really?

Perhaps I'm being a little naive, but haven't retired people already paid for their pensions through taxation and pension contributions during their working lives? The suggestion that retired people should do 'voluntary' work for part of their hard-earned pension is rather like telling  workers they must work more hours for the same weekly wage. Oh, and, by the way, no you can't have access to all the money you saved for your pension unless you do some more work to earn it.

What part of the word 'retired' does Lord Bichard not understand?
