/// Paxman, 69, bemoans how easily-offended 'snowflakes' have taken over. He writes that in our 'cowardly' world, pensioners might as well walk about with a sign pinned to their backs saying 'Kick me'. ///

Surely that should read:

'White' pensioners might as well walk about with a sign pinned to their backs saying 'Kick me'

That would be racist, I don't see why I should be deprived of the opportunity to kick people of all colours.
Why only white pensioners?

Dragged down to a colour once again, I've only had a speed read of the Link and I didn't see 'White' mentioned, correct me if I'm wrong.
The old duffer has a point!
TTT, do you mean Paxman or ANOTHEOLDGIT?
Or me...?
Isn't it a bit snowflakey of you AOG being all butt hurt because Paxman didn't say 'white pensioners'?
'The irony is strong in this one' as Yoda would say. lol
He must be talking about all those older people who we're told shouldn't have had a say in the Brexit vote ...

The 'usuals' have accused me for mentioning the word white.

To those who can't see because of the snowflakes in their eyes, it is because Paxman says "old people are the only section of society it is still okay to mock".

I question that because in this day of political correctness, I doubt that it is also okay to mock black pensioners.
//The 'usuals' have accused me for mentioning the word white//
But its not an accusation if its true!
aog, in fairness this really isn't about colour. Raising that detracts from the real issue - which is actually a very important one.
ANOTHEOLDGIT, why do you think white pensioners are treated differently from other pensioners?
calico: "'The irony is strong in this one' as Yoda would say" - no Vader would say that, Yoda would say "strong in this one the irony is"!
TCL, I refer to Paxo.
True dat TTT :) x

Okay then I give in, all pensioners, black or white might as well walk about with a sign pinned to their backs saying 'kick me'.

And are the only section of society it is still okay to mock while everyone else is off-limits.
That wasn't too hard now, was it?
I personally find mockery quite juvenile, we do see a lot of it here though.

If I have something to say to someone I'll say it.
.... but if mocked the black pensioners would play the race card....so AOG is just reading between the lines!
I see we're concentrating on the dark side.

If you say so...
