London, United Kingdom
The idea for The Oldie was cooked up by its founding editor, Richard Ingrams, and myself with the support and encouragement of others among our friends. It was envisaged as a light-hearted alternative to a press obsessed with youth and celebrity a truly independent, free-thinking, no-bullshit magazine. The Oldie offers almost no advice about retirement or how to grow old, but keeps you young with a steady supply of wit, entertainment and bracing good sense.
