Most people believe 'retirement as we know it is over'

This is the result of a survey of 1000 people carried out for the Newsnight programme on Sept 7th. There is an excellent review on the BBC website. I think they are right and not before time. It is even more bizarre when one reads of the French taking to the streets when it is suggested that their retirement age is increased from 60 to 62. And as for the Greeks! What world are these people living in. Clearly one in which the State somehow supports you to live for around a third of your life.
