Should over 70s be banned from voting on the country's future?Most oldies do not harp back to how it used to be. Because we have lived longer we have seen and experienced consequences of certain decisions and actions that the youngsters cannot know know or understand. It gives a balance to arguments.ViewDate:

Should all pensioners over 75 be entitled to a free TV licence?Difficult one as my husband is just about 75. I think the BBC is being picky considering what they pay their ‘celebrities’. They do produce some excellent dramas and documentaries though. However, I am lucky and it wouldn’t make a huge difference to us but it would to a lot of people. The problem is it would cost more to means test pensioners than it would save. Linking it to benefits is one thing but there are many people not on benefits who would feel the pinch. Who would carry out a means test and who would pay for it in the end!ViewDate:

Should we use Happy Holidays instead of Happy Christmas?Happy holidays is American so please let it stay there. If you stop saying it at Christmas then you have to stop saying Happy Easter too. There’s a lovely Muslim lady who i see every day in my town selling The Big Issue and at Christmas she dons a Santa hat and wishes everybody Happy Christmas......that’s how it should be.
