Government wrong to force elderly online

I OBJECT to the Government's stealth approach in forcing all citizens to communicate online with government departments, such as those dealing with tax and pensions. This is a de facto disenfranchisement.

The claims of cost savings are spurious. The Government is also complicit in allowing banks and utilities to force their customers to go online. The web has been deeply infiltrated by the criminal fraternity out to scam the unwary. Exposing the older generation to this is reckless.
