Is the UK Age Discrimination legislation yet another Camel?

Since October 2005 when I walked past the Age Positive stand at the CIPD show with my colleague Lindsay we started to take a look at the implications of the age discrimination act and what it means. On first look – ok so you should hire based on experience, on second look and discussion what is this, has the legislation been properly thought through, are there any precedences from other countries or states where this type of legislation has been implemented before, what are your thoughts and ideas on the impact of the act, even the Archers on Radio 4 (is Robert Snell to old to get a job in IT) any way the legal eaglets have been working away on it, I am sure it will mean change.
