Can someone older or wiser or maybe both, explain why since the idea that Brexit is happening, so many of the entitled generation seem obsessed with knowing what the future holds as if somehow being part of the farcical Eurocracy that is the EU provided some sort of certainty.
I actually listened to some deluded 20-year-old student on YouTube that phoned into LBC bemoaning the fact that he does not know what the next 50 years hold for him. Him and the rest of the world. But to then claim that is causing him so much stress seems like one more reason why the millennial generation is fast becoming as one motivational speaker said – ‘Millenials in the Workforce, A Generation of Weakness’
To use the classic comment, You could be run over by a bus tomorrow, the only certainties in life are death and taxes. I really do not understand that when we were stuck in the EU no one seemed that bothered by what deals were being done in our name, without our knowledge. But now that we are Leaving, hopefully, the divisive hair splitters like Tim Farron and his ilk want everyone to know everything, not the best negotiating position to be in, to make public any strategy that you might have just to keep nags like him happy.
Don’t get me wrong about the ‘Millenial’ generation, many do have a sound and traditional work ethic and in a just world should succeed in whatever they embark on. Sadly though it seems to be the ones that have managed to avoid even the semblance of real world everyday life, i.e. Part-time work to earn the money to pay for what you want rather than blag the Bank of Mum and Dad. Who continue to whine about the unfairness of it all. I understand now, that those of us that were ‘Baby Boomers’ are now referred to as the Selfish Generation. I actually responded to this comment, when I read it on Twitter.
@MarieAnnUK Since when. They are not the generation that believed the welfare state and rampant consumerism was a right that's a more recent aberration.

Oddly I have yet to get a response.
