They announced that they will be doing away with the rule of 85 for the council workers (ie you can retire on a full pension if your age plus your service is 85 or more.) Now you may agree or disagree with that, but who are the politicians to decide that when they have just put out a very sneaky announcement (Geoff Hoon of course) that a) the tax payer will be funding the black hole in their pensions which are already more generous than any other pension scheme in Europe, and which has a rule of 80, no less and b)they have just sneaked in another pay raise, paid in two parts so they get it compounded.
So what can you call a group of greedy b*stards with no consciences and a ability to make the law up to pay themselves more as they go along..... Snouts in the trough, money grubbing, thieves etc, but it needs a nice new word to describe them....

Gordon Brown nicked our pensions to pay for his!
