Heard on the BBC news last night:-
The Government are not going to force people to work until they are 70.

I can see two interpretations of this, instinctively I choose the "wrong" one :) The mental image of all these 70 year olds being bussed into factories and being overseen by cruel overseers with whips made me smile. (I'm strange that way.)

Peace
