Government ministers should estimate how much time they have left, say pensioners.

A pensioners spokesman told HuffPost UK Comedy that experts could look at factors such as ministers' socio-economic background and their majority at the last election to determine how much longer they will be around.

"Giving ministers an idea of how long they've got would help them make informed financial decisions, such as planning for their retirement from politics."

"For most, the expected death date is May 2015. It's amazing how accurately you can pinpoint it."
