There are so many pensioners that can barely feed themselves after working and saving for their pensions for more tha 40 years, while these Eurocrats get these vast pensions for doing WHAT????

I have yet to figure out how this country can continue to have the financial defict that it does, yet we are still in a position where British taxpayers are having to foot the bill on politicians pensions. One can only assume that the money is being borrowed, as a nation we are completely oblivious to the fact that we are no longer a force to be reckoned with, if anything we have become akin to the EU's forgotton council estate.

The top 1% will always look after themselves whilst pretending to act in the "public good", society needs to wake to the endemic greed and corruption which is the apparent basis of the current system!

Out with this! Change things by acting against people who advocate this enormous expense!!

If Britain can't afford this, they will need to adjust these pensions.
