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.
