Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but...

...Germany's 67 retirement age is unmatched in any other country. Germany is also the biggest net contributor to EU funds. In other words, Germans already work longer than other Europeans AND they contribute more to EU funds.

Greece raised its retirement age to 65 (although women, for some reason,--bizarrely--can retire earlier--don't ask me), and that number seems largely in keeping with other European countries, no?

the actual retirement age in Germany is 61.5 (official: 67)
the  actual retirement age in France is 61.5 (official: 60)

So, again: bah.
