You are paying tax on your state pension (unless I'm getting riped off) they deduct your state pension from youre tax code, so it is taxed. It just comes off your pussers pension. My tax code is 305, pussers, occupational and state pensions. But I agree entire with your comments on the idle bastards. I have a relative who complains about how low his state pension is. My only answer is "you should have worked"Am in receipt of pussers, local government and state pension, effectively pay tax on pussers and local government pension as state one is less than personal allowance. Always gives me a warm glow when I think how much tax I paid from age 16 to 65 only to pay even more to keep the likes of the bone idle sod living opposite me.
