Don't be misled. Peter will have substantial pension income as he worked (well, he went every day!) at t'pit. It follows that one could easily shoot oneself it t'foot!

My mum had a good job, my dad worked at t'pit (seven days a week, often 16 hour shifts etc.).
Dad died at 60, Mum died at 90. Mum got maximum state pension, two private pensions and my Dad's miners pension. Total income was over £400 a week.
When she fell ill, after a brain haemorrhage at 85 years old, she had to pay for everything.

I should imagine all of those who have worked all their life are in the same boat?
