It never rains but it pours. That is not so much a weather forecast for the UK this week as a description of the long saga of the Universities Superannuation Scheme.
When the USS dispute first began, Theresa May was prime minister, Jeremy Corbyn was Labour leader, Joe Biden had not yet decided on a run for president, Harry and Meghan were on their honeymoon and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation had not yet come into effect. The row over the USS is longer running than Mo Farah.
