I wasn't aware that it was compulsory for all topics/threads to have a direct Spanish connection.
Maybe the mods can clarify.

I'm afraid thats a situation that will never happen, I have been told from up high.... but to be honest I've never wanted to be one, but it really winds up some posters to think I might have been one once!!!

Were I politically inclined, I'd go for starting a grey party, for pensioners (were I also a couple of years older).

With the baby boomers moving to collect their pensions any day soon, there's real power there.

Trouble is the party would have no future after a couple of years, 'spose we could legislate for Free Flight passes,,,Free zimmer frames, care homes and ultimately free funerals!!

Of course the party would have a future, because more people would become pensioners with every passing year. They would replace the ones that die.

This reminds me of a little story about a little old lady in a small village in Galicia, when Spain was changing to the euro.

She was a bit worried about being able to adapt to the new currency, and said, " it would be better if the government waited until all the old people had died before we change over to the euro."

Naturally you jest.

Pensioners will come to control a fair old slice of financial reserves, - think of all that pension money, and their numbers will be going up for quite some time. That's a lote of votes.

Roll on pensioner power,..bring it on.
No doubt a certain Mr Brown has already learnt his lesson early,though probably too late in the day to save his bacon, from Rochdales,Gillian Duffy.

Not a chance, compare the values of following generations, all would be squandered on Celebrity , drug abuse, and Simon Cowell would probably end up as Prime Minister,,,,, not a chance
