Courting the grey vote

 

Sir, – Following on from the “granny grant”, we hear now that Shane Ross and his Independent Alliance are seeking an “elderly exemption” from the local property tax for pensioners. In their escalating effort to secure the grey vote, how long will it be before they are lobbying to raise the voting age to 65? – Yours, etc,
