Over-55s - the ones most likely to repond?

Share this article

To continue the debate about the response to the excuse that the consultation about the library was not valid because those taking part were mainly over 55, you can’t help wondering if the reason they were over 55 is because the over 55s are more likely to be bothered to respond.

Just as they bothered to go to the Polling Station to put Councillor Battye there in the first place.

You don’t give your age on your ballot paper, so why have to give it to take part in a consultation?

Also, isn’t the fact that they were mainly over 55 some indication that the mainly over 55s are the main users of the library?
