    Perhaps a topic that may be of interest to viewers of this forum.
    A progamme on the BBC this evening regarding what entitlement they may have or may not have when retiring abroad.
    There appears to have been changes in legislation in Spain,France and other countries which may have profound effects on retirement plans.

    Probably we dont say the same about those retiring here ?
