Many of the present old age experienced a healthy physical lifestyle and a wartime ration diet with less sugar which stood them in good stead.
Many of the baby-boom generation are generally no where near as healthy, too many overweight, too much alcohol with sedentary lifestyles.
And the Me Me generations behind are in even worse shape with high sugary pop diet to wash down the muck they eat at McDonalds which is sure to kill them off long before they get to state pension age.
Well this 'ere boomer intends to live to a ripe and healthy old age, only dropping dead at 100 whilst trying to keep the wheel of the (rather younger) ladywife going up some impossible Welsh hill. I hope to obtain more from the pension than I did from the wages, see - a naughty equation but I can think of worserer ones.
Cugel, probably due to drop dead of blott tomorrow now.
