This is on BBC 1 Scotland right now, just wondering if any of you are watching or planning to grab it on catch up. BBC News - With Scots living longer, is 75 the new middle age? Simple concept that I think applies to the whole of the UK rather than Scotland. Are we living longer? To the extent where the average age of expiration is actually going to rise. It technically means living comfortably at an older age. I just wonder if any ARRSERs (knowing you're all old cnuts) have taken any notice of this. The program (if you can get it on iplayer) is pretty simple but the idea itself is interesting. My dad had a funny way of looking at this. He's in his 50s and always claims that Scotland, and eventually the entire UK, is going to be a massive national retirement home with a roof over it. One half of the population will be elderly/disabled and the other half will be social workers looking after them!
