Hi Mike.

I’d say there’s an element of jealousy, those of us under 40 feel we are being financially penalised by the older — yet we are described as “entitled,” when our parents got free education (now £9000 a year,) the ability to buy a house and raise a family on one wage, a guaranteed pension at 60 (now 70, rising steadily) and a variety of tax breaks.

The older generation (my father is a year older than you,) were raised just after the war, on an emotional diet of rule brittania and the post colonial belief that we could still be a global leader without the assistance of our buddies on the continent. It seems short sighted and somehow quaint to still hang on to this.

I voted remain because the leave camp had no plan for what to do after. They want to be America, or Australia, or Switzerland or … they didn’t know. They lied and scaremongered and shouted down anyone who pointed out flaws in their lack of a plan, they courted the far right, and those who are scared of change and it upsets me that my own parents fell for it and now regret it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
