General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
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?
