Eilis Phillips runs a hairdressing salon in my home town.
She was doing her accounts recently.
She realised she faced a choice.
If she wanted to keep making pension provisions for her own retirement she would have to fire two of her staff.
She could keep making the pension contributions.
Or she could fire the staff.
She could not do both.
Without any fanfare or announcement or explanation, she shut down her own pension and kept her staff.
Eilis Phillips is a hero.
These are the sort of people we need running our country.

Exactly. Thanks for sharing, because so often I get the feeling that the only "heroes" are those concocted by the media.
