A pensioner writes

 

Sir, – For weeks now everyone who isn’t anyone yet has been promising to restore the retirement age to 65.

A laudable aspiration.

But will any party elected be helping the aged by forking over the 52 weeks’ worth of old age pension that I and thousands like me missed out on by retiring at 66?

Not forking likely. – Yours, etc,

Inchicore,
