    And believe me when I say the other half are damned glad they are. Oh and some of us are actually entitled to receive Government benefits after 50 years of paying benefits to the government.

    Not hardly.
    More than half of all wageearners get an income tax windfall every year.
    I would count that as a benefit also.
    Adding that in - surely we are at 70%
