Whoopee, this equates to approx £170 a year or just over £3 a week or less than half an hours overtime per week, and for what. The loss of thousands of pounds off of your pension.

You forget to mention the free shares which are currently worth over £4000 and do you really believe our pension would be better and more secure if it hadn’t been taken over by the government under privatisation

Part of the pension has been taken over by the tax payer, not the government. The government sold the company off at a massive discount in order that their buddies could make mass profits. In turn your new pension is based on a career average which means the value of it is worth far less than remaining in the final salary scheme that was taken over by the tax payer. Your bribe of a few shares ok worh £4k now does not anywhere near make up for what has been lost within a career average scheme. When you eventually move in to another scheme under the current review that is going on you will lose more again. I am not gloating, I feel extremely sorry for you guys who will not benefit from the better pensions that us who have already retired are benefiting from. It just makes me sick to look at the Royal Mail propaganda machine making it look like the dividends that you are receiving are making a vast difference to your overall pay rewards.

Read what I said do you think our pension would have been better or more secure without privatisation bearing in made the huge deficit we had and you talk about final salary pension that stopped in 2008 nothing to do with being privatised

In my opinion it would have been just as secure if not more so. Your pension benefits were never going to be not paid whilst under public ownership. It would have been political suicide. Privatisation allowed the Tory government to take in to public ownership the 30 odd billion of assetts in the Final Salary Scheme, much of which was used to make it look like the Tories had reduced the national deficit.
