The Tories' big fat pensions lie

Issue No. 2261

The Tories claim that public sector pensions cost too much.

But the National Audit Office, Office for Budget Responsibility and the Hutton report agree that between now and 2060 the share of the GDP—the value of all goods and services produced in a country in a given year—taken by public sector pensions will in fact fall from 1.9 to 1.4 percent.
