I was taking about their Darwinian inheritance. Not money or houses.

Morals and principles?
If so theyre gone already.
Many people expect the education system to bring up their kids.
No darwinian evolution there.

Maybe we have hit the nail on the head. I'm voting to make Britain a better place for my children when they are older knowing I will have to do one for the team and suffer a possible few harder years.

So really you are second guessing it will be better in a relatively short time.
More in hope or is it expectation?
I voted as i said for stability.
I really want it to work as its happening so resignation in my mind.

But in defending your kid's best interests, you're imposing your version of best upon everybody else's.

It should be perfectly possible for everyone to get the best for their kids.

The elderly have sons, daughters and grandchildren and an entire inheritance to think about. Thatís a bit more than where the next holiday or night out is coming from or who they want shag at the weekend. Your brain doesnít even fully developed until about 24 years old. Smartphones will probably delay that even further.

Itís weird to me how we adpoted a modern attitude of sneering at our old and seeing them as purely a burden. Thatís not the case in most countries of the world for good reason. I wonder why thatís why we have so many self entitled millennials with little clue as to whatís going on in the world but limitless capacity for being offended. They just need a good spell on the naughty step.

Itís also of note that the social justice warriors donít see age as one of their ďintersectionsĒ. Ageism clearly doesnít fit neatly into their ideology,

Yet manifestly they did not. That is the point.

It's too easy to cast the accusation that this is mere ageism. Whether you like it or not, without elderly xenophobia (not racism), Brexit would not have won the day.

And before another person accuses me of being ageist, I am no spring chicken myself.

Your point is built upon assumptions....You have no way of knowing they are any more better than anyone else's.

It's a judgement call.

Many in the older generation know that we were doing perfectly fine before the EU and know that being a trading nation we will again......Younger people don't have that life experience.

Also, the EU is not built upon stable ground economically nor politically and being outside the EU lessens the financial impact of its possible Euro collapse far more than inside it.

I had the same - some 'gammons' telling me not to disrespect the older generation - I am 70!!!!

My hat goes off to the one who accused me of endangering western civilisation by supporting another vote !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Never knew I had so much power....

Without youthful xenophilla Remain would hardly have won any votes at all.

Nonsense. This is just the narrative that you and the other bad loser Remainers prefer.

I'm "imposing" it's called a referendum?
I think the minority remainers are imposing their minority interests on our democracy

Yes a referendum that you won.

But let's face it you lost. I lost. We all lost. Democracy has been dragged through the gutter and the tories are entirely to blame.
