Lord Wei is reported in yesterday's The Daily Telegraph as saying that working part-time, volunteering for charities or sharing their business experience with young entrepreneurs would help older people avoid boredom in retirement. Apparently a pilot project to establish the idea of a "national retirement service" will target pensioners on cruises and other holidays. They, in turn, will be encouraged to target pensioners in the home localities.
He is quoted as saying: "Baby boomers are the youngest older generation we have ever seen. … They are not into morality,they're not into duty. If we don't facilitate this, there is going to be war. There are going to be arguments up and down the country because one generation thinks the other generation should be doing something."
Lord Wei was the great mind who advised David Cameron about the Big Society. He is 35.
