Britain vs France: pension reform

The French government's decision to amend pension reform laws has sparked outrage in France. Raising the retirement age from 60 to 62 and the age on full state pensions from 65 to 67 has set off numerous protests across the country. But over the other side of the Channel, some British pensioners are already continuing to work past retirement age - they say it's not about the money, but about keeping themselves active.
