The Demographic Sqeeze

Heyday, a new membership organisation for those approaching or in retirement, has launched in the UK with the backing of Age Concern.
Similar groups already operate in the US, including the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), which has a strong social and political voice in the country.
The AARP is arguably the most powerful non-governmental group in the US, representing more than 36 million people.
With such a huge number of members, who pay the modest annual sum of $12.50 (£6.73) per household, it is inevitable that some who pay their dues feel hard done-by when the organisation takes a clear stand, such as backing the huge prescription drugs bill which was passed a few months ago.
"It's a non-partisan, not-for-profit, membership-based organisation that is serving the needs and interests of persons aged 50 and over," said Ladan Manteghi, president of the AARP's global network.
"We exist for the purposes of delivering social change, that is the key point.
"The clout of our membership has the capacity to influence and bring about social change through government policies, through society, as well as through the marketplace."

The old dodgers are unionised, you don't stand a chance at the ballot box!

id like to see wartime steel helmets being worn by the elderly with AARP WARDEN on them and a white stripe marked - KEEP CLEAR - UNEXPLOYTED OCTOGENARIANS. they should also have a manbag satchel with the clear name label cover blacked out and blackout tape across each eye - making a slot.


and a buzzer for the warden fitted to every cool looking souped up vectra up to 2004. (bought by a 25 something who thinks they are stylish and a status symbol for the second hand car purchaser). perhaps fit a tail fin and factory gates. run out of ideas of what to add to your vectra.


go gas yourself in said vectra down an isolated local beauty spot called dizziness cove using a halford vectra' exhaust pipe-pulmonary anafilaxia monoxide poisoning' diy coversion kit. (from Pipe Benders Inc Corp. Tiger. USA).


retire and tell grandchildren tall stories of how you make superman and bill oddie come together to find recent nicotine crime in sudbury.
