Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What is it you want to achieve please?
There is no crime for hate against older folk. There is for rave crimes but not to do with age.
This means what he is saying is not illegal. But what you can do is a number of things.
You can write and complain to the newspaper editor about the term and content of the article. If the editor does not uphold your complaint then you can go to the Independent Press Standads.
