LADIES, STOP MOAN­ING... WE WANTED EQUAL­ITY AND NOW WE’VE GOT IT

THREE cheers for the Ap­peal Court which unan­i­mously up­held the de­ci­sion of the High Court to throw out the case of the Waspi women.

The con­tention that women’s re­tire­ment age should be re­turned to 60 is far­ci­cal. We wanted equal­ity, sis­ters, and now we have it.

Pre­dictably com­plainants say they will take their case to the Supreme Court. In an ar­ti­cle writ­ten in this pa­per by a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Back To 60 group, she claims the judgment was based on misog­yny and that the “Depart­ment for Work and Pen­sions has spent mil­lions of pounds of tax­pay­ers’ money tak­ing these women to court”. Eh? I thought it was you who took the gov­ern­ment to court, dear. I’m sorry for the hand­ful of women who some­how re­ally did man­age not to know the change was com­ing but for the fools who want to keep an un­equal pen­sion age be­tween the sexes, I have no time at all.
