Half of UK adults aged between 20 and 60 are not putting aside any funds into a pension, a survey commissioned by the BBC suggests.
The survey of 1,358 people by Gfk NOP indicated the situation was worst among under-30s, with only about one in three or 36% putting anything into a scheme.
Affordability is the main barrier for young people, with many saying they are instead having to pay off debts.
Among 41 to 60-year-olds, 45% are not currently paying into a pension fund.

I think you have a point, especially if the world ends in 2012
This is pretty much my take on it. The banks could well be going bye bye, the economy could collapse, we could be in for some very hard times. But if none of that happens, I'm boned

If I were you I would'nt bother gettin one either cos it's money down the toilet.
You're better off just saving any spare money you may have now or in the future yourself. Don't let any pension funds rip you off.
Enjoy life, have fun, spend that cash--the future looks dark so who cares!
