It only shows how much the pampered snowflake millenials hate this country
These will be the “pampered” millennials who can’t get jobs unless they have a University degree. The ones who if they do get employment it is likely to be a short-term, zero hours contract.
The ones who can’t get a foot on the property ladder unless they earn around £36k pa.
Unlike us baby boomers who could bike down to App Frod on a Monday morning and ask if “There’s any jobs going?”. We could buy a terraced house or flat for £5-10k on a 100% mortgage and get pissed up for a quid!
We could smoke and drive a car without anyone telling us we’re going to die of cancer or that we’re destroying the planet.
And we were all singing along to the Who. “Hope I die before I get old!” “We don’t get fooled again!”
But because young people care about racial and sexual equality. Because they care about ecology and want to stop the harm being done to the planet they are “woke snowflakes”
That’s because back in the 60s & 70s showing empathy was a sign of weakness. If you were a rough, tough, drinking, smoking, poking alpha male it was jolly bad show. “Never give a sucker and even break” would have been the BJ character’s mantra.
But that was fifty years ago and thankfully people are now more enlightened. I suspect they don’t hate this country. What they do hate is the selfishness and ineptitude of successive governments who have done nothing to address the real problems faced by the majority of British citizens.
But if your made up character wants to demonise them, that’s fine. We know it’s not a real person speaking.
