For your £23,350 you would get £1,300 per year (it sounds more as an annual amount to me!) inflation protected by the triple lock (at present) with 50% inheritable....

I am sensing that come the introduction of the new two tier pension in 2016 a lot of people will suddenly wake up to quite a few truths that they had not envisaged.
