The dust seems to have settled (a little) on the referendum result but I still feel very down about the blame for everything that is wrong with the world being laid at the feet of us boomers.
Many of us voted remain - and as I understand more of us turned out to vote than younger people whose futures were more in jeopardy. Whatever we voted many of us made those choices based SOLELY on the desires for our children and grandchildren to have a better future.
And still the accusations come along with the blame for everything else because we "had it so easy".
Yes we had free university education and didn't have to pay the tuition fees which make it so difficult for many younger people these days. But IT ISN"T OUR FAULT that it is no longer the case for our grandchildren.
Yes it was easier for us to buy houses and get onto the property ladder. But again - are we the ones who made this change? No. I would love to know my grandchildren could eventually find nice homes and not struggle to even rent.
My husband and I have worked hard all our lives. Yes we own our home but we have slogged and gone without to do so and have never had luxuries or fancy holidays. I am not complaining - this was our choice and I realise we were lucky to get on the property ladder. But I still don't see why everything is blamed on us.
