But remember some of the so-called age related benefits is money paid for over many years of hard work.
There is also a line of thought that if young voters had employed common sense when they voted the Tories would not be in office. Bypassing elections to make some sort of political stand is all well and good but we all have to live with the consequences of voter apathy and indecisiveness.
But having got that opinion out of the way it is still Kudos to those rallying Saturday.
One speaker will be Russell Brand a high-profile celebrity who actively encouraged people not to vote on May 7 before doing a U Turn and trying to promote Labour leader Ed Miliband in the eleventh hour.
Other speakers include singer Charlotte Church, Len McCluskey of the Unite union, firefighters' leader Matt Wrack, Labour leadership contender Jeremy Corbyn and Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness.
A good mix for a die-hard Labour supporter and left-winger such as myself; however Jeremy Corbyn's appearance will seal his fate in the Labour leadership election race. If against the odds he is still elected leader sadly Labour will not win at the polls unless Tory pain is widespread and extreme.
Protesters from around the country will descend on London and will march from the City of London to Westminster.
Other speakers will include Kate Hudson, general secretary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament who said ahead of the protest mass mobilisation was key to persuading the new Government not to renew the Trident nuclear weapons. Lindsey German, convenor of the Stop The War Coalition, told the Scottish Herald: "I will be marching because I am fed up with all the main parties saying they are going to promote austerity. They have made the rich richer and the poor poorer and they're going to continue."
If you unablke to attend show your support to the protesters by tweeting #NoMoreAusterity @pplsassembly plus #JuneDemo and #EndAusterityNow.
Good luck to all those taking part and above all stay safe.
A section of the British electorate believed the pre-election polls; they thought Cameron could and would be locked out of Number 10 and a protest was scheduled to make sure that happened.
Were Saturday's protests merely a set-up or genuine? The jury is out on that one. It was a relatvely small protest widely covered by the right-wing-biased media in the UK while previously other more important and heavily supported protests have been ignored. But if it was real we say people are angry and who can blame them?
If you are disenfranchised with British politics or the political system of your country that is understandable but you have to be in it to win it. The only way you can change it is from the inside not putting yourself outside of the system looking in; Kudos to those who finally are angry enough to protest but they would have been better being politically active in the run up to May 7.
