Many of us over 60 are counted out when part-time jobs come up despite our collective wisdom and abilities.

Published Letter in The Guardian on 10th July 2017 on University Fees   Dear Sir The initial mistake in introducing fees for university students was to make them the same for every institution.

Parliament Squared (written 03.06.17) We Brits gave the biggest sigh of relief when the Westminster Circus Act aka as the General Election ended at 10pm on 8th June 2017. Of the many mistakes the PM made during this May-hem was a) to call it and b) to call it early allowing eight weeks of electioneering.  At the start of the election she had a 24 points lead at the end it was down to 3, 4 or 5 depending on which poll you trusted.
