This week Craig talks to Bill Johnston, mutual co-authors on their book All of Our Futures (available here) about the new Scottish Government, the need for a Minister for Older People with a strategy for age and ageing and some comments on recent moves by the UK Government to adopt a “Mid-Life MOT” and attempts to change the state pension.

[Edit: Since the broadcasting of this podcast it has been confirmed that the position of Minister for Older People has been scrapped]
