Speaking after the conference, run by the International Longevity Centre, Mrs Vass said: ‘Older people stealing their children’s future was the standard wording.‘But actually that was apparent well before Brexit, particularly around housing and wealth.‘There has not been as much recognition that a lot of the inequalities in wealth are within generations as well as outside generations.’She said many people now try to avoid calling the post-war generation ‘baby boomers’, adding: ‘It’s often used as a term of abuse.’Policy consultant Mrs Jopling also condemned the tone of the discussion on voting trends.‘It was more about the language, talking about older voters stealing our future, talking about should older people be allowed to vote,’ she said.‘For me that was illustrative of how far we had gone with age discrimination, if that was acceptable to say.’ The issue of Brexit discrimination arose in a workshop called ‘Is the future more or less ageist?

Speaking at the The Future of Ageing conference in London yesterday, Mrs Vass said: ‘After Brexit, there was this demonisation of older people – in some cases [people said] “take away their votes”.’ Mrs Jopling added: ‘There was a casual use of demonising and divisive language – the bandying around of stereotypes about who older people are, about their economic circumstances, their motivations and even their ability to form rational judgments.‘Baby boomers used to be talked about as the generation that were going to change everything, now it is almost a term of abuse.’Baby boomers – the term given to those born in the population explosion after the Second World War – were widely blamed by the Left for Brexit after polls suggested over-65s were more than twice as likely as under-25s to have voted Leave.
