German retirement age raised to 105

To quote Lewis Carroll:

“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
He chortled in his joy.

Dave came good, and as Guido points out, the rightness of his decision is confirmed by the usual suspects.

It will be interesting to see how the other initial dissenters fare: Hungary, Sweden and the Czech Republic. Likewise even if they  do all sign up, who will be the first to “do a Greece” and completely renege on their responsibilities. Probably Greece, I would guess.

Having said that, if I was a German taxpayer I would be very disgruntled today.

Nur fünf Jahre zu gehen...

 

** PS:  this would be an excellent time to call a general election.
