Edinburgh Evening News - Politics - Pensioners to fight for Holyrood seats

"The party says the Executive’s scheme of free bus travel for elderly people within local areas should be extended to cover journeys by public transport across the country . And it says pensioners should have the right to die with dignity and to "choose, within the law, when and where death should take place". "

Yet another new party to fight the Scottish elections. The Pensioner Party. Actually I have heard talk of this for a few years and it has been tried in other countries. The Pensioners Party in the Netherlands was succesful for a while, but became quite right-wing and anti-immigrant.
