[pc gone mad again] are you one of those wicked ageists

Interesting twist in Australia where PC gone mad actually benefits the middle-aged like yours truly [don’t forget I’m 90 according to my blog profile] but I want none on’t. Ageism laws come into force on October 1st. Heaven help us. The Employers Forum on Age survey of 1,000 people aged over 16 found 61% of respondents knew of cases of what they considered to be ageist behaviour where they worked. What utter balderdash. People being asked to identify wicked ageists, newspapers running full ageist-hunts plus obligatory ‘vote here’ boxes. This is a perfect, absolutely perfect example of woolly-headed do-gooder terrorists wreaking havoc. What utter … sorry, have to stop. Where's my pace-maker?
