It’s a great article, well done Renn.

I think it’s appalling that people should be refused ANY medical procedure on the grounds of age. Isn’t that ageism? And what’s the betting that the over 65s have payed all their taxes for 50 years (they left school at 15 then) and yet some of today’s people have never payed any and still get everything they need (for free)

Outrageous. It’s discrimination plain and simple.

It’s very sad for the people who lost their lives, but they had seriously shortenend them already and were more than likely heading for illness and early graves – bariatric surgery is often, literally, their last chance (like Doodah said)

Well, that’s my rant for the day over….sorry but I think the way we treat our senior citizens often sucks!
