As a pensioner largely unaffected by the cuts inflicted on other sections of society, I would be more willing to forego my free travel and prescriptions and my winter fuel allowance if the sum saved could be ring-fenced for job creation for young people.
At a time when difficult choices have to be made, the needs of the young should always prevail.
Any government prepared to take an electoral risk with the old in order to promote such a principle would win support.
