This is a special edition of something that DID appear on the ABBC website today ( that, coupled with the ABBC News on TV basically states that pensioners are literally sucking the life out of those who work and the young. Therefore, as a fully retired pensioner of 70 ….. I would like to apologise … for …..

  1. Going to university and building a successful career that paid well.
  2. Leaving school when I was 16, leaving home when I was 19 to find work.
  3. Moving around Scotland and England to find work to care for my family, my whole life.
  4. Paying NI contributions for 43 years.
  5. Paying into a personal pension fund
  6. Believing what my parents told me that unless I started saving for retirement when I was VERY young I would retire in poverty.
  7. Surviving an inflation rate of 18% and a mortgage rate of 12%+ in 1980s
  8. Paying off my mortgage from savings when I was 60
  9. Realising that the ABBC headline and idiotic reporter on TV wrongly talk about Income instead of Disposable Income, I also apologise for knowing the difference.
  10. Finally, I apologise for living too long and being in a position to tell the ABBC what a group of whinging piss artists they are. Sort your facts out, and get that crystal ball out you constantly use to spread doom and gloom about Brexit, turn the brightness up and predict the glorious economic boom that will surely come again, as it always does.
