National's plan to raise pension age to 67 'ridiculous'

Grey Power is branding the National Party's promise to raise the pension age to 67 if elected into government as ridiculous.

It's something that former Prime Minister and National Leader John Key vowed never to do under his leadership, but was swiftly picked up by his successor Bill English in 2017.

Despite a failed election campaign, the policy has survived National's latest proposals ahead of the 2020 election.
