Older women in Scotland face a "double whammy" of poor employment prospects and pensions

BBC News:

The Equal Opportunities Commission said one million older workers across the UK want to return to work but were being prevented by inflexible arrangements.

One in four older women and one in six men were currently employed on a flexible working arrangement.

EOC Scotland Commissioner Rowena Arshad called for a pensions system overhaul.

Research carried out by the EOC revealed a lack of awareness on pensions, with the majority of women not having a "reasonable basic knowledge" of pensions.

"As Scotland's population ages, more and more of us will need support from family and friends," Ms Arshad said.

Of course, by relocating the British colonists in the north of Ireland to Scotland, you would expand the Scottish tax base which would allow for more money to be spent on pensions.

Who are the colonists? Those who self-describle themselves as Unionist who have been there for so long that they have no familial connection whatsoever with the areas to where, in your fucked up world, they would be forceably relocated from their homes?

No wonder they have no truck with the idea of a United Ireland if that is the fate that awaits them with nutjobs like you in charge.

The British colonists are the Unionists who are the people who started to come to Ireland in the early 1600's against the wishes of the indigenous Irish population.

They don't want to see an united Ireland because they are supporters of British colonial rule which is why I want to see them relocated to Scotland.
