Don't you have to have under a certaon amount in the bank to get that, or does everyone over the age limit get it?

State pension is not 'means' tested. Everyone gets it at what ever age is set. Soon by 70 I expect.

Complaints? He's probably paid 20x more than everyone here combined into the system. He should be back to take all he wants.

the Stones left the UK when Labour were in power back in the late 60's early 70's, as they put super tax up to 90% :shock:

I do not know if they are in residence within the UK anymore, or if they just drop in whilst passing :P :)

so they are only entitled to a state pension if they actually paid into it
it is part of our national insurance deduction
Beware of Geeks bearing GIF's :shock:
