It is getting well up my nose that the large cohort of over 70's is putting a strain on the countries resources. The National Health Service in the UK is supposedly under strain because of the elderly it now has to support. I hear this many times daily in political debates and arguments and the Sheep all seem to swallow it hook line and sinker.
I want to shout out to the uncomprehending younger generation who have now got their naive hands on the tiller of the Ship of State. This is the very same cohort that paid their dues in Tax and health contributions all through their working lives at a time when virtually all had full employment.
We paid into a state insurance scheme all our working lives so now comes the pay out! So where did the money go that we were assured care in our old age?
The elderly should not be seen as a liability but as a group deserving of gratitude for their past work and contributions.
