Wrongs and rights

• Given all the controversy over the last few weeks about ministers' pensions I feel compelled to write this letter.
For some reason public sector workers have a property right to a pension that their contributions do not fully fund and yet as a private sector worker the Government feels it has the right to take a percentage of my retirement fund each year to waste on some job stimulus programme.
I cannot understand why my contributions (or 'property') do not have the same level of protection as public sector workers.
