    Interesting question. I think once you get older and more battle scarred you look less favourably on youth who clamour for justice which you yourself had to fight for. So probably never. I am wondering how many people have to be deterred from having large state dependent families before people stop voting Labour.

    The older generation are the people that benefitted the most from state welfare.

    They also got free university education and could buy all the council housing stock.

    You could say the current elderly population are the most parasitical generation that have existed.

    Really? I'm what you could class as elder, I've worked all my life and I'm still working, paying in to a pension fund and I own my house, tell me again how old you are and how many years you've earned a salary/wage and contributed?

    Yes, there was lots of welfare but it was clear it was meant as a safety net, and once it became to be seen as a right then people turned against it.

    As for buying council houses I never liked that idea. council housing is supposed to be for people who otherwise wouldn't get a house. But I suppose it's worked out ok in the end as now the government can't just build up an entire town. It has to be done by companies who are easier to deter. Possibly.

    Lots of student cheering and whooping last night and loads laughing in the shops today. Obviously happy for some reason!

    Listen to yourself. People on handouts bought council houses?
    The only people who have bought their houses, council or otherwise, are people who worked for it. Which is why you will never own a house.
