Wonks - what will they think of next?

Here is a corker from Demos:

"...using older people as the new public service workforce. Imagine some sort of voluntary national service at 65 that helped people become part time teachers, social workers, sure start workers. We could tap the well of creativity, care and energy that so many retirees still have".


Right. Retirees really will be queuing round the block to take up stressful, front line jobs in the public sector, and furthermore to do it for nothing. I do not doubt that a lifetime spent working in insurance, retail, farming or whatever will be the perfect training ground for being spat at, sworn at and dodging fists or worse. After all, you never get teachers, social workers etc jacking it all in after a few months because of the fun and games that come with the job.

Doubtless we can expect the Demos bods themselves to lead the way when they collect their gold laptops.

Not your C but it reminded me ... I wonder why Conservtatives are so silent on the position of carers. They do work and their contribution is huge outiside formal employment . I`d like to see some thouight about this real issue ( and a bit less Zakannalia....fun though he is )
