The European Commission is having a Consultation on whether it should be,
"Designating 2012 as Potential European Year for Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity".
Not sure if it should personally should, but I would love to know what active ageing and intergenerational solidarity are.
Going round to Gran's for tea counts? and active ageing? As opposed to just sitting there and getting old? A geront Olympics only open to people with bus passes?
Or maybe a cover to spend taxpayer's money persuading old people (those most likely to vote after all) that the EU cares?
