Spur of the moment post. Not really ready for publication. Nothing prepared to post for today, so this is a raw version.
Generally you could sum me up as a bleeding heart cafe latte sipping, sav blanc leftie who is quite well off, and you won't be far wrong. I care deeply for the environment, for animals, for those less fortunate in society and did I mention our environment? If we don't get that right, nothing else will be right.
But I do get a little cross with moaning young people who for everything is so hard. I know it is hard for so many but really! Women are so often disadvantaged, left holding the babies, literally and metaphorically. Young men are immune, until you look at the suicide statistics.
But I say to you young people, you get up at 4.30am for a 6am work start, work until 11am, go home for a break and report back to work at 3pm and work to 7pm. Go home, repeat and rinse.
Do that for forty years and you may well be as comfortable as I am and can retire at the age of 62 and own your own home.
Yes, no children, no responsibility aside from R, family and friends.
Later edit: This was somewhat intemperate and not my finest moment. I am not sure what brought it on, but there you go. I will let it stand.
