    Kicking off the debate, Het Tony gesê: ‘I think Michael Gove was having fun. If you took this to extremes and banned people over 40 from being in a cluball those people in Ibiza all the DJs, they’re all over 40 do you stop them performing?

    'Ek was 60 when I first went to Ibiza, I don’t go there now, but I was 60 and then I went to a club that was playing trance music and I loved it.

    ‘I don’t just see why it should be that you’re over 40 and you can’t go to a club, it’s obviously ridiculous. And with all due respect someone of 22-years-old, you’ve only got 18 years left, so you better get on with it.

    Tallia said that while she appreciates older people ‘living their best livesshe still isn’t keen to see the over 40s partying the night away when she’s ‘in her prime’.

    ‘The thought of seeing somebody live their best life, I’m all for that,’ sy het gese. ‘But I’m 22-years-old, I’m only just coming into my prime. I do not want to walk into the club and see my dad, my dad’s friends or even my granddad cutting some shapes.

    ‘I’m just not sure what we have in common, I’m not sure if they would be able to relate to the top UK hits right now. All up for cutting some shapes but I think £5 entry fee, £2 shots, they can be left to us youngsters and you guys have many more options to head to.

    Musician Emma Lament, who posted the videos to Instagram, wrote in the captions that newly-single Gove was ‘giving it big licksas he bopped to pulsating techno music.

    Tony went on to argue that there should be nightclubs exclusively for the over 40s, and that seeing older people ‘getting up and dancing is fabulous’.

    ‘Why shouldn’t we over 40 be able to have some fun?’ asked Tony. ‘When you are over 40 you don’t care as much as when you are 22 or 24-years-old and I know what she means about seeing her dad in the club but why not? It doesn’t matter.

    But Tallia went on: ‘My brother just turned 17, so he has one year left until he hits the clubs, I asked him what would he think if he saw a politician in the club, en hy het gesê “absoluut nie”.

    ‘Perhaps we should talk about a separate place for the over 50s, 60s to cut some shapes. I’m just not sure when we’re having fun and dancing with our friends I’m not sure are in sync. ‘
