LAST WORD
By: Geg Hopkins
We should never assume that anyone is too old to vote, or not interested, or too cognitively or physically impaired, we all have a voice that needs to be heard.

A lovely cartoon in the newspaper the other day showed a long suffering wife, sitting in the living room chair and her husband looking out the window. She says; ‘Come away from the window and stop watching the world, you know how it upsets you’.

This actually reminds one of the old couple transiting life in their own quirky way, just as old couples end up doing with gems of wisdom pouring forthwith. The old man, wearing nothing at all, wanders past the window with its open curtains and the wife chirps up; ‘For God’s sake, come away from the window, people will think I married you for your money’.

This epitomises the older generation, most of whom become tired of all the hype and ego induced scheming of today’s truly partisan world. Most of us old ‘uns see through it all, but there is nothing you can do to convince the younger, media indoctrinated masses that their lives are covertly conditioned.

Life expectancy is ever extending and no sane person wants to depart ahead of expectation, plus the world’s population is exploding in more ways than one, particularly in under-developed regions where culture and mentality deem the masses oblivious to the consequences. This presents a dilemma to the degenerate Illuminati, because in all essence ‘they’ disingenuously nurture this pool purely for the egoistic vote. Did we mention the V word there? Oh my goodness, there goes any chance of a garden party invite or indeed an OBE or higher.

Almost all ideology fades as one gets older, except perhaps religion where hope plays such a major role into the unknown. Now, if senior citizens see through all the smoke and mirrors and will no longer vote for such ideology or Kardashian like idolisation, then are we in danger? If so, at what stage of our lives?

Are you at risk? Old is gold and grey, but a nuisance for this ultra-dominate, pseudo young egocentric, egotistic establishment which controls and even micromanages the very words we are allowed to utter. You know you are old when the doctor says; ‘You’re gonna die’, and you reply; ‘Dubai? I thought I was in Bahrain’.

You know you are old when you can no longer wear leather pajamas and look back with self-pride at your hippy love-in days when chatting up the pretty girl with flowers in her hair and you claimed to be an organ donor. Half the people you meet talk to you in clichés telling you that you are not old and that you just need to lose a bit of weight, which is a near impossibility because what constitutes exercise and weight lifting, in the senior years, is just trying to stand up.

You should know you are old if you were asked to name a bird with a long neck and you answered Naomi Campbell and think it so funny you then proceed to endorse your own joke. Best of all, you know you are really old when each time you open your mouth someone immediately responds with; ‘I can’t believe you said that’ or ‘I find that so offensive’, which nowadays legally transcends to being libellous or defamatory for every little thing. Then it hits you that you really are old because every sentence you utter contains the word ‘nowadays’ followed by ‘we used to’.

With justified suspicion the first counter contention imposed by this rabid collective could be to somehow remove from the equation older folk who will no longer vote for them. It is not rocket science to figure out what is really in the minds of the numerous talking heads given endless platforms on the BBC.

With millions from the third world now firmly ensconced in the West, all on a promise of carte blanche privilege in return for towing the party line, those across Europe who have been pulling the strings for the past 40 years or so are in a panic to counter the potential rebellion brewing.

Nervously flip-flopping like a hermaphrodite snail on its first date, the condoning media is constantly airing twisted cloaked fanatics, all trying to babble their way out of their own doing and suggesting anything which will keep them in power. Heard on the BBC recently; a slip of the tongue or seriously dangerous arrogance, one or two such talking heads recently openly suggested that old people should be struck off the ‘Register of Electors’, meaning that they should lose their right to vote. The host no doubt near swallowed his tongue while diving for the profanity button. Too late, out it went; but was there a backlash? Oh please; as if! OJ Simpson’s trial was more transparent. And it goes on, just like OJ getting married again because he’d like another stab at it, the BBC will keep on pushing it as if they have ‘nothing’ to do with it.

If our impending dementia doesn’t get the better of us first, we longevity Shar Peis on Zimmer frames can clearly see the quagmire deliberately enforced upon on us over the decades by the charisma void PC collective. A collective united in controlling our thoughts and brazenly legislate it. Sure, as of yet, this clique of wonderment cannot openly condemn old people — that would be politically incorrect – so they actually rely on dementia setting in.

Dementia, as devastating as it is, also has many advantages. Less stress for one and probably the best thing about still being active yet suffering from dementia is you get to meet new people every day.
