I was incredulous at Harriet's statement. I find the whole thing utterly offensive. It's offensive that such deals are negotiated in the first place. As i understand it the pension deal was written in long ago in that if they screw up and have to leave they can get their pension at 50. As I wrote the other day, such a deal is abhorant. However, that was the deal. Even more abhorant is the backtracking over it, the political hysterics manoeuvring over it and the idea that the law should be changed to claw the money back. What happened is no more than has gone on in this industry for longer than I care to guess.
