when asking in the house can you ask why i and many of my friends who i have retired after 34 years in T A got no pension all though i worked on average 100 days a year i paid full tax and insurance i put my country before my family and i diddnt get a pensioneven though for 25 years of my service the regulars were in a none contributory pension why wasnt i i earnt the same money

if i had worked part time in a pub doing less hours the law would have insisted i got one even the human rights which i feel were ignored
this gov and all before and after are looking for a defence force on the cheap i wish i had never served now as i look forward to a life without the backup of a pension
