    EU sandwich meat confiscation

    More to the point are we confiscating the vegan sandwiches!?

    There have been a lot of comments on ‘the young generation’ being a combination of feckless, wasteful, scroungers, druggies, pissheads, living on credit etc etc. All a bit sad if I’m honest. In any case- surely it’s not the kids fault what the parents may be like? Firstly, alcohol consumption...

    That’s fine Paul, just block the abuse. It’s not hard- most companies do it!

    All valid points and clearly I have no knowledge of your personal circumstances. Many economists think this is the deepest recession since 1706 though, so on a rather different scale of magnitude.

    I am not having a ‘meltdown’ I thought I’d start a discussion on inter generational fairness. As the pubs are closed TFF seemed a good place to start. Government policy always transfers funds- from rich to poor, from London to the regions, from the working age population to children and the...

    Indeed, through the tax and benefits system, not just a cash lump sum. Just to make clear, I don’t really have any skin in this game. I’m 33, no kids currently, no elderly parents. I certainly wouldn’t be expecting any money. It just makes me so angry to see good local youngsters having their...

    Probably not much. The point remains though- the young and productive and those still in education have made enormous sacrifices to save the elderly from a virus that barely affects the young. There should be a financial transfer down the generations to acknowledge this.

    Every action has a reaction, and in this case the reaction is devastating.

    I didn’t say that actually, that was Essex man. In any case the average UK house price is £256,000. A lot of parents don’t have a decent property. A lot are in council houses, rent privately, or are paying off a mortgage on a damp, mouldy terrace in a decaying seaside town. In any case it could...

    Leaving aside your first slightly ridiculous sentence. How do you provide for yourself if your job is currently illegal to perform?

    The young are getting the virus, but statistically very few of them are getting seriously ill and even fewer are dying. To them it really doesn’t matter. The average age of a covid death is 82.4. The UK average life expectancy is 81! We are destroying the future of a young generation to save...

    A union that regularly reports false advertising perhaps?
