  1. As an “old person” of this region I take great offence to the generalised attack on seniors by John Griffiths in his haphazardly constructed, and rather juvenile, diatribe on the supposed rudeness of the older generation. How he develops his argument against the penchant of “old” people to prefer to interact on a more traditional and personal level – in preference to hiding behind the cowardly and often socially destructive façade of social media – into his closing statement: “Having rorted the real estate and retirement income systems to the utter detriment of the wider nation, please excuse us if we don’t want to hear more about your moral superiority” is beyond me. As someone who has spent a long and sometimes arduous working life putting into place the wherewithal for my retirement – so as to be fully self-supporting and no drag on the poor young taxpayers like Mr Griffiths – this last statement is wholly offensive. And, Mr Griffiths, if you would like to peruse an example of moral superiority in print, read your own column.
