Any politician who is misled by her thoughts about National Insurance should beware of voters' reactions. A generation of contributors has grown old in the belief that in return for their payments there would be a state pension in the end, whether they needed it or not.
If the system is to be changed fundamentally, notice should be given now that the change will take place in 50 years' time.
Anything less would be fraud.
