Good evening Panda

It makes me laugh when politicians were against people having their own money to look after. I think if you have saved all your life, you're not likely to waste it  just because you've turned 60.

These were the same politicians that thought it a great idea to pay housing benefit to the tenant rather than the landlord. Tenant spends it, doesn't pay the rent, gets evicted and then there's another problem. At least if rents were paid direct, the tenant would still have a roof over their head. Before someone goes ballistic, I'm not suggesting all tenants do that, but drug addicts, alcoholics, and those incapable of handling a budget do, and some just play the system.

I signed it. my pittance of a private pension comes at 60. First they moved my state pension to 63, then 65, now 67. I already had a letter saying I have done 35 years full time , so accrued enough NI.  Now I find that the "full pension" we were promised won't be because they take some off because of the private pension.

Wouldnt it be fairer to say if you have enough contributions, you can retire? A lot of men with physical jobs cant keep going to 67. The joiner across the road from me is  cream crackered at 57.

I might draw it all out and but a second hand ford  fiesta.  Anyone got enough for a lamborghini?

I think your camera steamed up, can you have another go?

Hostafan, they are based on the full face diving masks that you see presenters use, so that they can talk to the camera. I wish they would just dub it instead. waving arms around underwater, talking to a camera is silly.  I dont use my snorkel much, and I need a prescription bifocal mask, and the types of mask that can be fitted with prescription lenses is very limited. I think if you are just surface snorkelling, lying flat in the water, they are a good idea. You wouldn't get a good salt water nasal washout , though. that you get with a normal leaky mask.

I don't do any sewing, beyond  repairing hems when they come down, and sewing on buttons. I hold the record low marks for needlework at my school.  19 %

 I'm better at sowing (seeds)

Verdun, you need to try these..

although you might need to jump in quick, I have put a complaint in to ebay about fraud, although they don't seem to be bothered about it.

If they want fresh blood, why not try a youngster. What was the name of that young lad at Chelsea last year... he seemed a natural.
