      Why the hell would I want to spend thousands going to Uni when I am officially allowed to retire in August 2014.

      Would any of you consider it ?

      Love this amongst the comments

      I saw something about this on Sky News when they where doing the newspaper reviews last night but didn't catch quite what it meant until just reading this.

      Quite shocking to say the least to be honest, many have worked for years and years and many to get where they are would have more than likely had to train to be where they are, seems all wrong to me that at the age of 60 and over they should be made to go back and pay to retrain.

      The simple fact of the matter is people cannot afford to retire.

      I certainly wouldn't go to uni,I am a driver by profession,spent over 35 years on the road.
      I could train as a Pron Star I suppose but wouldn't need much training :loling:

      Spend most of my working life on the road sometimes doing hefty work delivering metal parts or machinery - already feel fit only for the knackers yard.
      Off work at the moment with back problems and wishing I could afford early retirement - not later!

      I'm in school right now, I'll worry about that when I get to a retiring age.
