Raise retirementage for our judges

A news headline said, "AG to seek higher pensions for retired judges".

It would be more constructive to raise the retirement age of judges; life expectancy has increased for both men and women and our judges should be allowed to continue serving for at least five more years.

Should this require a constitutional amendment, a "partial" amendment would not raise the nation's hackles as has a recent partial proclamation.
