Esther McVey is obviously deluded when she says that because the Rolling Stones are still gigging, people can work into their seventies.
How she can compare the Stones, who gig “every now and then” and are adored by millions, to carrying on pushing paper into pension age is beyond me.
One simply cannot use “pop stars” as examples for everyday behaviour, since they are outliers in every sense – they don’t work 9 to 5, they don’t work every day, they don’t have thousands cheering their every deed. The Rolling Stones are very lucky and envied by millions, but they should not be used as a yardstick by which others should be judged.
