Having seen the line up of ministers for the new government, I couln't help but notice how young they were. Being young doesn't bring experience, or empathy for those who are older.
While it is good to encourage younger people to be part of a government, will they realise the experiences of those who are older and be able to think how would they think?
Older people have the experience to bring to the benches and to say what is needed in society.
Please don't get me wrong, it's great that we have these young politicians helping make decisions for the country, but will they be able to help those who are older back into work and to provide new opportunities.
Yes you've probably heard it all from me in previous blogs, but it is important for older people to be given the chance in getting back into employment and to use their experience and skills to help where they can.
If these skills aren't used, they're wasted and people get demoralised and sometimes apathy can set in.
So by having a workforce that incorporates different ages means that every age can contribute and that would encourage diversity.
The fact that the government looks younger to me, does mean I must getting older!
