On behalf of all men, I would like to thank the WASPI campaign for all the work they have undertaken to highlight pension inequality, now that the Government will no longer directly discriminate against men (although hopefully they are working with the NHS and other services to equalise life expectancy for males and females).#smileyface.

I find it amazing. Well amazing that it has taken them 25 years to notice that we are to be treated equally, especially as we do have longer life expectancy. It is the extension with little warning to 66/67 that is to is unfair & against what "they" said they would do.

Yes, they are being that precise about it.
Nothing like cliff-edges in policy to engender feelings of inclusivity and equality.

May have had more sympathy if they had just concentrated on the 2011 changes - but I suppose that wouldn't have benefitted the graspi leaders, who wanted their 'pin' money from 60.

The problem with getting a WASPI2 involving 1960s-born women off the ground would be that women born in the 1960s would have been between 35 and 25 when the 1995 Pensions Act was passed. All of them will have been living with a State Pension Age of 65+ throughout most of their working lives. They will find it more difficult to pretend to themselves that they thought their SPA was 60.
