Mr Misery quits at 61
THE civil servant who masterminded pushing the retirement age up to 68 is retiring with a £1.8million pension pot – at 61.
Sir Robert Devereux is stepping down as permanent secretary of the Department for Work and Pensions.
The Edinburgh University graduate will get a lump sum of £245,000 and receive a £85,000-a-year pension when he leaves his post.
In 2015, Devereux was paid a salary of between £180,000 and £184,999.
Prime Minister Theresa May is paid £150,402 a year. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon gets £151,271.
The increase in the pension age will come into force in 2037, seven years earlier than planned.
