Think of the young

Have your say

The future belongs to the young. The outcome of the EU referendum will alter their lives forever. It won’t affect me because I’m too old to cut the mustard any more. So I intend to consult my grandchildren, listen to their views, and vote accordingly.

I propose all pensioners do the same.

It’s the grey vote that usually decides elections these days. I can picture elderly Euro sceptics setting off for polling stations, whistling the theme from Dad’s Army, convinced a Brexit will stop foreign invaders.

However, I’ve heard we’re likely to have another financial and banking crises if we do vote for a Brexit.

Once you tell affluent old wrinklies like me their pensions and savings are in danger, it concentrates their minds wonderfully. They made decide what’s best for young people may be what’s best for their bank accounts too.
