My thanks to everyone for posting their comments on this page...it is encouraging to know there are others who share the same beliefs.
According to the Office of National Statistics 71 per cent of pensioners are now regular Internet users. For a generation of post-war baby boomers the prospect of discovering a favourite website is a great way of escaping the uncertainties of this crazy world. What with the European Union spiralling ever deeper into crippling debt, not to mention its paralysis over border controls, we face tumultuous times ahead. But now that the Brexit referendum has been decided we can hopefully get back to the way things were; to flourish as an independent sovereign nation and embrace a wider world …oh, and this is not some misty-eyed melancholy getting the better of me; it’s the way I feel about the world we now occupy, or at least the little corner of it I feel comfortable with...the UK now seems a good place to be again.
All in all, since joining the Common Market (as the EU was then known) my generation have witnessed many changes and, let’s face it, not all of it has been plain sailing. I suspect the younger generation, who have known nothing else but living under EU rule, will soon experience a change for the better to their lives and begin to understand why my generation enjoy our trips down memory lane to the old days. They were the sunniest of our lives.
My thanks to everyone for the feedback – it makes the compilation of this website all the more worthwhile.
