Home comforts
If you were looking forward to a healthy, comfortable old age, forget it.

A recent report suggested taking away from us ‘oldies’ our winter fuel allowance, free TV licence, free prescriptions and the loss of, or a cap on, benefits.

The reason given was that we were living too long and there were more of us.

If there is a shortage of cash then stop giving it to, say, India, which can put a rocket into space and promote lucrative cricket tournaments.

Inspired by games
MUCH is made of high profile sports stars, actors and other celebrities being held up as role models and in many cases, although not all, that status is justified.

But inspiration is perhaps more obviously found among those whose spirit and strength of character carries them through times of incredible adversity.

The 400-plus competitors in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games undoubtedly fall into that category.

The games captured the public’s imagination and have helped bring about a greater understanding of the sacrifices made by those who put their lives on the line for their country.
