I had to pay for my university education. I only got on the housing ladder 2 years ago over the age of 30 due to the cost of renting, cost of living, and average salary v house price ratio being way way higher than my parents' generation, my right to live and work in the EU is being taken away by a majority of people who will be dead in the next 20 years and this over entitled bunch of babies in government are sleep walking us into a clusterf*ck of a situation.

But yeah, my generation have it on a plate and still want more. We haven't had anything easy.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk. I will be taking no further questions.

Because your generation are a bunch of spoilt, unimaginative, gender-confused, effete, Corbyn-loving Remainers, pussies and benders.

Really liked the bit where he goes to the posh people's dating agency for the privately educated. Almost encourages selective breeding, bordering on eugenics. Might try the app myself, might have to tell a few porkies though.

You could be their bit of rough. I would easily qualify for that dating agency but I'm as rough as Tesco Value loo roll. It would be a bit of fun though to show up in your Palace kit, fag in mouth and beer belly popping out. 'Hello love, want a peanut?'.

National Service and The Goodies were a couple of things people had to put up with.

How deluded are you?

Comparing your so called hardships to past generations is an insult to all those who helped drag this world to where we all in the West now enjoy relative paradise.

You talk like owning your own home has always been the norm.

Yes, and he proved my point.......

- I've regularly eaten bread and sugar for tea on Thursdays because there was no money til Father brought his pay packet home on Friday.

- More than one or two new garments a year was a luxury, everything else was hand me downs and jumble sale recycles (except shoes and underwear - Mum was very particular about that - although I have gone to school in mismatched shoes)

- University was for rich people - even with the then student grant - most just had to get out and get a job and earn a wage. (I paid fully for my own degree course in my 30's - not a repay when you earn loan)

- Yes, rents and purchase prices were lower, but mortgages were still near impossible to get for low earners. If you didn't qualify for council housing, you lived with your parents (even after marriage until you could get a deposit together).

- When you did get a mortgage, it was at 6-7% interest rate, and at one point in the 80's hit 14%.... try that on 80's wages!

- Abroad was somewhere you went with Thomas Cook for 2 weeks every year - but it didn't matter too much because it was full of foreigners anyway

and let's not forget the times when outside lavatories were common, central heating was unheard of, running hot water was a luxury for the few and some people were still living in pre-fabs from the war because there was a housing shortage.

I would imagine that Dan's been spared most, if not all of the above hardships of life which were pretty common when I was younger.

Multiculturalism has been and is a disaster, gay pride is ridiculous but largely harmless....But..Ed Sheeran is an abomination on this God's earth.
