How to maintain your bigoted views in retirement

IT can be a challenge to navigate the transition to retirement while remaining militantly bigoted. Stay an intolerant prick in the twilight years with these tips:

Talk to young people

Hearing your woke grandchildren spouting irritatingly tolerant views about immigration and climate change and giving up dairy really stimulates your narrow mind with new things to get angry about. What on earth bloody ‘non-binary’ is you don’t know.

Build a social network

It is crucial to seek out other like-minded bigots who can inspire you to get all het up and veiny about new things. Watercolouring classes, Facebook groups called ‘Old Stoke-on-Trent was best!’ and your local post office are great fascist networking opportunities.

Challenge yourself

It’s very easy to slip into ‘not being bothered’ about issues that you’ve never directly enountered and don’t affect you. That way lies liberalism. Get yourself boiling mad by reading all the papers online and chase whatever tiny thing really inflames you.

Put yourself forward

It’s easy to feel invisible in retirement so find a way to make your voice heard. Why not load up your favourite right-wing rag online and start commenting below articles so you can hear your views celebrated and reinforced. 77JubileeBrit must speak for the people.

Golf, golf, golf

Everyone needs to workshop their prejudices sometimes. If ever you feel yourself teetering and thinking disturbing thoughts such as ‘maybe grand-scale nationalisation isn’t such a bad idea,’ the lads propping up the bar at the golf club will be there to set you right.
