Should 1950s WASPI women be compensated? MoneySaving Poll Results

Souk

Up to 3.8 million women born in the 1950s had been due to get the state pension at age 60. But legislation changes as recently as 2011 mean many will receive theirs up to six years later some didn't hear about this until too close to retirement and say they hadn't had time (or in some cases, the means) to prepare for this delay.

Labour proposes to compensate the women affected, costing the state 58 billion over five years. Boris Johnson said in a leaders' debate that while he sympathised, he couldn't promise 1950s women the money.

Which of these levels of compensation, if any, is CLOSEST to your view?
