Former Labour ministers were handed more than £1 million in severance pay at the General Election, official figures show.
A total of £1,051,202 was awarded to ministers when they left office, Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude said.  Ministers are entitled to receive a severance payment equal to three months of their annual ministerial salary.
That gives a Cabinet Minister £36k and even a Junior Minister gets £24k and that's on top of all the other perks and pensions they pick up.  I don't have much Sympathy for public sector workers who are getting a fucking good final salary pension as I've always worked for myself and I 'did in' my what little pension I had years ago to get money out of it.  Money purchase schemes are a con anyway, why should you have to buy an ANNUITY?  However, if they want to cut CIVIL SERVICE PENSIONS they should start with the ROBBING BASTARDS OF WESTMINSTER.

Well said!!

Did you notice that Cameron gave up his right to a PM's pension? Whats this? A principalled man as PM? Surely not ?....

Annuities are thankfully to be a thing of the past. I have 3 plus a drawdown scheme. Why should I have to give my money to a company who then give me the same return as I would have got if I had stuck in the building society? And when I die, they keep the money whereas if I invest the money, I can leave it in my will.

It's the biggest con in the world (after global warming of course)...

Greekers, I was in Insurance for three years and yes annuities are the biggest con out. If you kick it 1 day after setting it up the company keeps the money. Aye, fuck that! Just give the punters the money to do with what they want.

Anon1, no nothing has changed but at least the new broom is getting to grips with the economy, instead of those Labour bastards. Always the same, they fuck it up and the Tories have to repair it, except this time it's fucking serious!

Mr Moat, Douglas Hogg was looking for a moat, why don't you look him up?

Anon2, I hope you enjoy your retirement. I hear you're running for the Labour Party Tresurer's post. That should be worth a few readies. Keep on buggering your manservant!
