Not totally "lucky". I started paying into a company pension from around age 18 and of course contributed towards a state pension. I've earned mine.

You were lucky to work for a company who provided a pension scheme, probably with your contributions matched by your employer and your tax and ni lower as a result. And if it was a final salary scheme you're laughing. Add to that a state pension. Anyone who has been salaried in France would love to pay ni level contributions in the UK compared to the cotisations paid here. Yes you worked, but I think you'll find that those currently working are paying for your pensions. What you contributed could never provide what you get.
