Snowflakes all of them--they have never had it so good :)

Is this what my grandfather fought for --spoiled rotten :D

Millennials often report a struggle to save a deposit to get on the property ladder, but now research has revealed just how much they could save with smarter budgeting for their social lives.

A survey by sellmymobile.com has found that on average the nation's 18 to 35-year-olds go out twice a week with friends, spending £6,589 a year.

Most set a budget of £100 a week for socialising - amounting to £5,200 a year - but go well over this by £1,389 thanks to impulse purchases.

These include impromptu spending on takeaways, lending money to friends without getting it back, rounds of shots and choosing taxis over public transport.

Almost 80 per cent revealed they often wake up with regrets over how much money they've spent, while 85 per cent agreed they could put their money to better use.

And a massive 90 per cent admitted they were in debt because of their party lifestyle.

well that's a point,your right.
I,ve asked a few younger generations about there life style spending, the most answers I got was, well if we have nothing we will get help like all the immigrants why should we save when ,people come into britian for a so called better life,go strait on benefits,get free accomadation,all off the back of our working ,tax paying parents. you cant blame them,
another answer was ,all this talk of war,you never know what tomorrow brings,
this is the generation of mobile phones and not talking to people only thru technology,i think it started with the anti social walkmans , people walking around oblivious to whats going on around them,and car radios blarring out, :)

Where you at a UKIP or free Tommy Robinson rally when you conducted this in-depth survey?

If this nonsense makes you feel better about the second betrayal of a generation in our lifetime well what can I say other than sweet dreams.

What’s that story got to do with blaming immigrants for everything, I think if you were faced with a ten year quest to get a deposit together that involved not drinking or having a takeaway and probably not having drunken sex, well you would want to blame someone, but I think it would be the people who control the supply and demand of houses and salary not Mr Patel from the corner shop.

Jonesy--

Millennials have to take responsibility in a changing world --they are not owed anything by the Government or the previous generation.

What this demonstrates is that they do not have the determination or stamina of the previous generation to solve their own problems.

They need protection from themselves and Brexit will no doubt give their motivation to succeed a much needed boost.

Sorry you are wrong, the government you support has a responsibility to provide social housing for those who want to rent and legislate that salary and employment conditions allow for home ownership for those who want to borrow. The kids have no chance with your crowd in charge. They won’t experience well paid jobs for life or the cheap social housing that we did, you must live in a dream world if you believe what you post, it’s a wind up isn’t it ?

Are you having a laugh :wink:

When I was a kid we had outside toilet--we had no central heating--we kids all had a bath once a week in an old tin tub in front of an open fire in the cupboard that passed for a sitting room :D

You obviously had it easy--and good luck to you --well paid job for life :D

You had an outside toilet, so what

Lots of homeless people are still using the back alley to pee, is that better or worse than your former situation, stop winding me up and offer some sensible debate.
