"Pensions timebomb fear if Scots back independence"
Apparently....."Employers would be forced to plug gaping holes in exposed pension schemes immediately as underfunded "cross-border" schemes are not allowed under the EU's Pensions Directive."
Putting aside the fact that the EU makes things up as it goes along ( see Greek pensioners etc )and will happily allow member countries to dip into people's pension savings to pay off EU troika debts whenever they feel like it......what about the fact that the UK pension system is already a total basket case and we have been warned for decades to sort it out ?
The IMF recently warned of a £750Bn 'pension time bomb for the UK unless it was all sorted out. I'd put the figure at double that.
The anti independence newspaper stories are liberally dowsed with the standard 'maybe's' and 'possibly's ' and 'might's ' to cover their backs and give them deniability later on down the line.
Scary story 6666109 from these 'news' papers was that an independent Scotland would be 'kicked out' of the EU. But just in case we do get in there will be a pensions 'time bomb' will there ? I wonder if they work late into the night to write this pathetic dross ?
Most people who buy these types of 'news' papers must be staunch Unionists who will never change so why do they bother ?
