Wrote a lovely long reply only for tinternet to die on me and lose the post - suffice to say, as usual the papers are not factually correct re pensions.
My advice is to attend one of the current "New Pension Scheme" briefs and get the correct info. Admitedly the new scheme is not as good as the previous ones but the brief will alay some of the rumours being put about. The 5 years extra is in addition to the current 18 not 22 and that hasn't been agreed yet - nothing has. Leaving at age 40 to get immediate pension will change too but could be as low as age 43.
One thing we did get to do re this new pension was to fill in an on line questionaire and put forward our views to ensure we get what we deem the best that's available - no other public sector workers got that privelage.
As for redundancy - I doubt anyone thinks Tranche 2 was the final redundancy scheme ever - so yes, payout a lot less for the next round post 2015!
