Opinion

Opinions?  Opinion pieces?  Opinion editorials? Op eds?  world in handWhatever you want to call them, opinion pieces are always going to annoy someone.  After all opinions are very much subjective.  And as we know, you can’t please all of the people all of the time.

MrandMrs50Plus.com has plenty of objective advice and information as well as some chatty and perhaps irreverent opinion pieces.

Even if you don’t agree with our opinions by our various 50 plus writers, then we hope you at least enjoy them.  Mr and Mrs 50 Plus all like the occasional rant and we’re more than happy to include them here.  Tony Drury’s rant about cyclists is probably pretty annoying if you’re a keen cyclist.  Nonetheless it’s what he thinks.

Opinion pieces will always offend someone.  However by the time we’ve reached our fifties and beyond, we should be able to hear people out. After all  we all like a bit of controversy!
