“However here we are in 2018 – in an increasingly insular and angry country where a sizeable chunk of the previous generation have managed a land grab bigger than has ever been seen before, left us with a particularly predatory form of capitalism, then all taken an early retirement that the rest of us are having to pay for by working into our late 60s.
