Yeah, sex discrimination. If you ignore the national state pension ages at least.

Take it to the European Court of Human Rights. Could be a landmark ruling.

There's a charity called "parity" who took the government to court about prescription charges being free for women over 60 and men over 65 and won.

I would imagine that this may be considered discrimination but there's not much you can do other than suggest this to the turnstile operator on Saturday

They don't now, a woman who is sixty now does not get her state pension until she is over 65. Soon it will be 66, the same as a man.

Are we in danger of losing the plot here ?
What about "kids for a quid" ?
Are we gonna start calling that "Age discrimination" against adults ?
I do hope not.

No, because all children below a certain age pay £1, It's not boys below 15 and girls below 13 !
