    15 million Brits lose savings thanks to Blair & Co

    Another reason to thank Blair & Co, from Bloomberg:

    About 15 million British citizens who were forced to invest in the domestic bond market are losing their savings, and the government is telling them: Too bad!

    Prime Minister Tony Blair and Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown forced the U.K.'s 760 billion pound ($1.3 trillion) pension industry to increase investments in sterling-denominated bonds starting in 2004 after the collapse of funds left tens of thousands of workers without retirement savings.

    This should be a huge scandal djeb, you'd be surprised at just how many people are still asleep though. It's outrageous that Blair & Co can get away with these things.

    This could be a Canadian thing, but any time politicians so much as make noises of putting pensions at risk, Canadians of all ages scream bloody murder.

    Good for them, people should shout out when these issues are at stake.
