Retirement age

It is clear that the age of retirement is to change due to the financial environment and the fact that people are living longer.

My point is that age is not the fairest milestone to use for allowing access to state pension. As the state pension is paid for by national insurance, then surely the quantity of national insurance a person has paid should dictate when that person is eligible to retire.

Why is this idea important?

Restore parental rights.

Over the last decade we've seen an erosion of parental rights and in a general move toward a "nanny state".

I feel it is outrageous that educational and medical institutions are permitted to offer councilling and products (such as Drug, Bullying, sexual relationship councilling and Condoms or even abortions) to children (I.E under 16 years old) without perental knowledge, let alone their permission.

Whilst I understand some kids seek support where they feel they cannot approach their parents, they are still minors until the age of 16, and are the responsibility of those parents.Some parents may not be interested, but that is no reason to interfere with the overwhelming majority of parents who can make a much bigger, more lasting and more positive difference to their childs' life.
