I don't really know what to think of this but i'd be grateful for some of your views. My friend recently retired gets a good state pension, and a small company pension, just enough for her not to require any pension credits. However it's annoying her that someone she knows of the same age is getting a much smaller state pension but has had it topped up by pension credits to an amount very near to what my friend gets.
I can understand why this might annoy my friend, because in her view she's made more contributions, thereby should be rewarded with a higher pension than the one she knows who paid much less in but is now more or less getting the same. But on the other hand someone who hasn't paid enough, if they didnt get a top up probably wouldn't have enough to get by on. It's a tricky one, what do you all think.
The SNP is in a ‘tremendous mess’ apparently.
