OVER 65? Call it a day.

This is the instruction from politicians, both local and national.

Retire from work, lock your door and vegetate in the house.

You have paid your taxes for 50 years — thank you very much, but do not expect anything back.

We will close bowling greens, never mind the health and social benefits to everybody.

Cancel bus passes so no one can get to the shops who do not have a car and have limited ability, and cancel TV licences so retired people have no pleasure at all.

Labour or Conservative, do not bother voting, as the establishment does not care a jot what the people want, only their own political self interests.

Do not get me started on Brexit and the petty political infighting, instead of what is good for the country.

Perhaps another time.
