Greens court wrinklies

Some would say older canberran’s already have a wildly disproportionate influence in the running of the city.

But the Greens’ Amanda Bresnan is calling for them to have their own Assembly.

“An ACT Older People’s Assembly would produce important recommendations to inform ACT Government policy. While certain areas of ageing policy rest with the Federal Government, many areas of ACT Government policy still impact on older people in some way”.

A a demographic it’s a brave new world for the Greens.

My initial reaction? Another layer of taxpayer funded governmental busywork to make a sector of the community feel like they’re being listened to.

They can sit around and shout “Get orf my lawn!” and talk about when things were better in their day.
