Hey-ho.

Britons will have to work until the age of 70, at least five years beyond the current retirement age, if the Government is to stand any hope of bringing public debt under control over the next decade, a report claims.

What if folks decided they didn’t care about bringing public debt under control? What if folks decide they don’t want to work till they’re 70? How long will folks be allowed to decide when they will and won’t work? This article shows clearly who is working for whom.

The Telegraph article has a couple of interesting maps: the UK unemployment map and the UK job losses since Oct 08 map.
