The future of Britain is an ageing population. Life expectancy is increasing dramatically, if unevenly, across the classes. The proportion of the population aged over 65 has risen to 12 million and is predicted to be 21 per cent of the population by 2050. Longevity is creating a new third age of life. This chapter argues that we have begun a cultural revolution in ageing which will transform the political agenda and economy of the country.
