    Can I retire 5th Jul 18 at 5:09 PM
    I only have 2 bob and if England win on Saturday against Sweden I want to retire and go to Russia for the semi and hopefully stay until final. Come home after that and live in a land of bliss.

    Does anybody see any problems with my plan?

    You seem to have thought this through and I can't see any obvious holes but living a life of bliss isn't all it's cracked up to be

    If we win the World Cup the government is going to allow everyone to retire, paid for by Brexit...

    If you do need to get another job afterwards, I hear some guy called Donald wants to hire a shedload of bricklayers?

    Random47, you can only retire if you have a job! :-)
