Don’t do yourself down so much BS! You seem to be feeling guilty about living so long!
The scandal is that this country fails miserably to look after its elderly, despite all the easy slogans about ‘charity begins at home’ and ‘we look after our own first’.
You’ll hear over and over ‘we can’t afford it’, while the government spaffs money on their other projects, with the papers cheering them on and making people feel as if dependency is their own fault.
It’s just the elderly either – take kids’ school meals, or nurses’ pay, just for starters…
It’s a massive irony that so many who depend on the state actually support a government which is in favour of cutting their benefits!
Truth is, the government don’t give a fig about people like yourself and Alcy, as the last ten years clearly show.
