The occupied territory of the 6 counties is not part of the UK
Newsflash. Like it or not the fact is, it is.
We have to take the bad with the good in life and just get on with it.
Thats it isnt it. Its a game of survival and only the strong survive etc etc.
I choose to work for myself to allow me the flexibility to move and try stay ahead of the game but that comes at a price. I never know where I will be in 6 months. Tomek is 3 and the next one is due in May. I can't put my wife and kids through that for much longer.
Decisions are looming and I need to make them soon.
as long as i pay for 30 years total i'll get the pension. A few years left to make that up.
Even with less than 30 years you are still entitled to something.
30 entitles you to full basic state (97 a week currently)
Less than 30 I think its about 47 per week.
