  2. What prevented Fred and Doris from (20 years ago when they retired) from imagining what their future might be like, and taking steps to develop contingency plans?

    • Because imagining the future & developing contingency plans involves change which is something the elderly dread. If we dissect the story Ed has published we find that one measure would have solved better than 90% of their problems & that was as simple as learning to use the internet thus giving them access to their bank accounts. Those without children or offspring who have vanished overseas are particularly vulnerable.

      We have a high uptake of technology but even the RBNZ noted recently that it was impractical to withdraw cash from circulation because that was the only medium sectors of our population can use.

      I don’t pretend to know the answers but the outcome could repeat itself here in NZ thousands of times over.

  3. A wake up call to the mawkish sops who chant “children are our future”.

    The vile narcissists are in fact a threat to your life. They would have you killed in a flash to get the inheritance they are “entitled” to.

    Yeah yeah not all of them.

  4. I note no-one is saying that it wouldn’t happen and for the reasons stated, Oh god I must be a racist.

  5. Fuck that’s depressing, but very, very probable. Actually the number of elderly people that have been neglected is quite an indictment on our young generation. And they have the fucking cheek to call this virus the “Boomer Doomer”.
