Every week, older people are accused of having done well at the expense of the young, and are blamed for everything from the housing crisis to the amount they use the NHS. Some groups have tried to create a phoney war between the generations - not because they want to help younger people, but because they want to reduce pensions and benefits for everyone.
That is why it’s in the interests of young and old to stand up for better public services, affordable housing and a decent welfare state.Today’s campaigns on behalf of pensioners will benefit future generations, and today’s older campaigners recognise they must stand with today’s younger people to defend their jobs, pensions and the right to a decent period of retirement.
