What is our life expectancy?

One BBC report, for example, claimed that life expectancy for a man in the UK is 77, meaning that after working to 66, I would have only 11 years left. That seems a bit harsh.

But wait. Another report says that life expectancy for men in this country is 89. Now that’s a bit more like it. But they can’t both be right. Or can they?
