Do the oldies want to sell their decendants down the river?

I keep hearing about the 'demographic time bomb' - where by there will soon not enough native youngsters to pay old peoples pensions.

Some people suggest that this means the UK has to allow immigrants in to work and pay the taxes to pay the old peoples pensions.

Have the old, retiring people been asked about this? have the retirees really said that they want to sacrifice the country they have were born and lived in, that they are content to destory the culture they lived throuh, and leave their children with what ever is left just to keep them in the last few years of their lives?

And this doesn't actually cover the root of the penision problem - why have the government not managed the 'time-bomb' - if more people are needed (and the UK has space for them) why has it been made so expensive for british families to have large families? - if more money for pensions will be needed why weren't those individuals NI contributions saved to cover the coming expense?
