Have your say

I am hoping to make contact with others in the area, interested in the need for better representation for older retired people and who may feel they could play a part in forming a new party – Grey Wolves and Wolverines (GWW ) and of fielding a candidate for Parliament in the coming May election. Our vote - the over 60s is eagerly chased by all parties currently paying lip service to improving services for us.

In what is fully accepted as an ageing society there will be an even bigger population of the over 60s/retired by the time of the 2020 election and beyond. We need more effective representation at the highest level to ensure that the rights and needs of older people are at the forefront of and not on the fringes of Government policy.

And younger voters need to remember that almost everyone will get to that stage in their life. If you would like to explore the possibility of the GWW or just put forward your opinion of what you believe older people’s needs are please do let me know at dennishunt771@btinternet.com and let’s get the ball rolling!

Dennis Hunt,
