“I strongly believe pensioners who need benefits should get them. But there are those who just don’t need them and so in some cases they should be revised and means tested.”

“Top earners work for over 20 years and pay a considerable amount of tax- putting a lot of money into the system. So why shouldn’t they be entitled to benefits once they retire?”

“The retirement benefits you are entitled to should relate to how much you earned throughout your working life and also relate to your personal finances.”
