Age discrimination at the top - I don't think so!

A discussion has begun to rid the UK of old laws and traditions that would prevent a Roman Catholic or a first born girl from inheriting the Crown. I notice that there is no mention of anyone in this position not being allowed to work because they have reached 65! Charles need not concern himself with this - unlike the thousands of other people who are still being discriminated against because of their age. Actually, the royal couple are fantastic examples of just how much valuable work can be carried out be people who are well over 65. Queen Elizabeth's mum was still doing part time work at the age of 100. So let us have overall genuine diversity here for us all.
