Re-orientate public funds in favour of a younger demographic.
The average age of an MP is 50. http://www.parliament.uk/about/faqs/house-of-commons-faqs/members-faq-page2/ The average age in the UK is 40. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/uk.html The babyboomers have had their day. They enjoyed the boom years and now seem happy to deprive the next generation. This petition is not about a tax cut or rise. This is a petition requesting that the government reduce all existing funding specifically aimed at people aged over 45 (for example the winter fuel allowance or discounts on second homes) and re-allocate this money to things specifically aimed to benefit people aged younger than 45 (for example promotion of affordable housing or university fees).
