    Rott Weiler. that doc appears to be from 2015. Has it taken that long to be published? :eek:

    Published today but briefing on the 2015 reforms and the current status of them. I haven't read it but HoC briefings always give background and explanations of where things are and current issues but never comment on what the government might be planning to do in the future.

    I’ve had a quick read. It seems to be mostly explaining the changes and reasoning as they have occurred. Interesting about independent schools where they discuss the idea of teachers currently in the scheme continuing with it but new employees not. I don’t think the schools like that though because the costs are still so high.

    I hate it when politicians talk about "reforming" something, when really they are going to erode, dismantle and destroy it. I don't remember lots of teachers asking for their pensions to be "reformed".

    Totally agree...and then have the gall to say that the legal challenge will lead to it 'costing' them £4 billion when in fact that simply represents how much they were 'taking' out of the pay package for the public sector through those reforms.

    Could we ask the BBC to include the above statement in any reporting they do in relation to this :)
