Anyway aye our nations have endured a lot worse, but that was our parents generation , they were built that way



Or did tough times make them so? They did sports and so had winners and

losers?.....they did exams and pitted themselves against others or measured

their own progress in growing up, it was competitive and it made them tough.

They strived and were prepared to work for to reach personal goals.



Now we have young adults who need safe spaces and cry booths !
I truly worry , but as long as we have food in our bellies and a roof over our heads we will carry on!


Perhaps if they had to strive for those basics they would shape up and have

some self worth ...... and find out that *the best victories are the hardest won*

Whites Chemical works and the shipyards they were after.

We don't have much choice i suppose but to carry on.

But when your weans are supposed to expect less than you had yourself, somethings just not quite right.

Hopefully, they will be educated enough to address the problem better than our own generation.

Then again somehow i imagine they will simply be taught just enough to tick a box, if they can lift the pen that is.

well yeh this is it I think!

both my grandfathers fought in the war and came home to have my parents !
I think its that generation of brits who were just solid , but at the same time didnt focus on emotions too much !
They had a can do attitude and thought it was for the betterment of society

now this generation focuses on emotions more and loses touch with its hardiness

Too many group hugs....

Posing, pouting and posturing for a roll in a reality TV show and be a celebrity?

Poor millennials have got a tough existence to look forward to i suppose.

I mean when they canny tie their own shoelaces, or move out of there parents basement, until there mid-30s, what chance do they have of picking up the torch and continuing along with society?

Not much really.

I don't know any millenials like that, all my mates kids in their early 20's moved out as quick as they could, cheap litle rented flats or house shares. I think this cry cupboard thing et al is mostly the domain of middle/upper middle socio economic demographic families. You don't see any silliness like that in my rough arse housing estate, if being offended is all they have to worry about walking the streets then they really have no clue about the realities of life.
As my dad used to say when I was whining, "Whoever told you life was fair son?"
On a side note, if There is a second referendum then 3 years of new millenials turning 18, and old people dying, it could swing it to remain.
I almost don't care anymore though, we've already been shown that a referendum means nothing if the vote goes against the plans of the people really in charge. Pseudo democracy is how I view it, but still, better than living in Sudan or Nigeria I guess.

I beg to differ..... I borrowed the deposit for my first home, It was in poor

condition and needed a lot doing to it. My mother was upset when she saw

it.

I wasn't too proud to except hand me downs furnishings and furniture

from family or their friends. Learned DIY in decorating and small jobs and

did improvements as I went along...... the DIY was not perfect but I improved

as I went along, and old gifted furniture was done up and different. As the

market improved I moved three times.

I dont suppose any one remembers Barry Bucknell the first DIYer?


These days the youngsters want to start where it took me years to arrive at,

and they want all the new gadgets NOW.

Good furniture is regularly dumped (in the past people hung on to their furniture

for years) .or up cycled it


Truth is they dont like hard work ...... and why would they when they behave

like children without any responsibility in their parents basement till their mid 30's ???

"I beg to differ"

What about? Seems to me we are actually in agreement for once.

My guesstimation of weans and young adults these days is that they simply don't have the motivation nor common sense to achieve most of the goals that they set themselves.

When they get knocked down they simply run straight back to mummy and daddy and expect them to make everything ok, which we do i suppose.

But the life lessons just are not there anymore, or if they are it can be considered somewhat illegal to even attempt to teach them.

Think you just called it with "rough arse housing estate".

But they don't all live in rough arse housing estates now do they?

You don't see as much silliness on the estates because they don't get the luxuries nor security blankets to facilitate the silliness.

You do however see mass poverty, drug, and alcohol addiction, and plenty of people dead before there time.

I came from one of those estates, life is what you make it i suppose.
