I'm interested to know whether you can actually support that assertion with any evidence?

Not having a go at you personally, but a lot gets bandied about re the voting in the referendum, but it really isn't fact given our votes are secret.

There was a poll that gave a strong indication that the young vote was to remain, but even that relies on those they asked giving honest answers...and we know such polls aren't totally reliable, just a steer.

I did a quick google and didn't come across any 'evidence' of the votes of those in their 90s.

My father, who fought in WW2, died five years ago. He was a Tory, was prone to outbursts of racism, but was a strong believer in Europe because it brought peace and prosperity. I sometimes went to D-Day trips to Francce with him and the veteran that I met were similar-minded Such a shame that the generation of people whose views were shaped by the wars are slipping away.

Someone aged 10 living in London during the V rockets of 1944 would be 83 now. Plenty still alive with memories.

Not yet. They bleed me dry anyway. But you see my point?

Those born in 1934 have probably had the best of this country. Affordable housing, proper pensions, no conflict (unless they joined the forces), good standard of living etc. Etc.

My old man. On the nose.
Lived in Lodge Gardens very close to where one of the first V1s hit London.
Conservative to the core and sees the benefits of the EU.

This with bells on.
Will add to that, free health service, free further education.

I think there is a tipping point probably as a result of the 2008-9 depression. A long period of rising living standards will be held in check whilst we clear the build up of debts. There are a few years left before living standards stop rising but a combination of a structural not cyclical UK deficit and rising interest rates will cause problems by the mid 2020s. A good election to lose in 2022.

We show no sighs of clearing debts though. As I understand it personal debt is rising rapidly again. It's all about credit and debt these days. There is just too much "stuff".

Consumer debt is confusing. The amount borrowed is rising fast but the overall debt level is rising only a little. So for now the debt is mostly being paid back but that will or could change in a downturn. Much more worrying is the build up of government debt. It's blindingly obvious that banking capacity has not been replaced since 2008 and the government is having to step in. Again, okay for now but not when a downturn next occurs.

Most worrying is the rise in non- discretionary costs such as health, education and pensions. At the same time we've lost taxes from reckless banking and North Sea oil. Sooner or later the middle class public will end up picking up the bill, probably after the election.

Well he'll remember the referendum of 1975 when the Tories and moderate Labour fought to stay in the EU against the TU barons, Labour left, Jeremy Corbyn, Ian Paisley, the SNP and Enoch
Powell.

Yup. A good time to pay significantly into pensions right now if you're on higher rate tax I think.

Ironic that some are slagging off the 'old' for voting out and yet they are the ones that voted for us to stay in when we had the vote in the mid 70's.

Maybe, as has been said repeatedly Europe is no longer what we voted to join.
