Where's The Life

1. Go to work, try and avoid redundancy.

2. Save all you can for a house deposit.

3. Might have a good sum of money saved and get a reasonable wage, but you feel like you can't spend it because in real terms, relating to house prices you are poor.

4. If you go to university, you leave with debt.

5. Bombarded with media messages, enforcing the "keep up with the Jones message".

I repeat where is the life, the future. Anybody who doesn't agree, I will assume isn't a potential first time buyer or has rich parents to bail them out.

The government, Gordon Brown paints a rosy picture of the economy but the more and more FTB’s (maybe a generalization, but the 18 to 35 generation) that are stretched, the more they will not spend not because they don’t want to but because they can’t. Who will prop up the economy then.

Bombarded is about right - have you seen the latest visa ad? beautifully shot and with a romantic feel and the slogan 'Love Every Day' (except that day last week when the bailiff came round)...

I work in an ad agency & listen to people coming up with crap like this all the time, gets my goat a bit.

At least we don't live in Russia, where, since 1990, average male life expectancy has fallen 7 years to 56 years of age! :ph34r:

I admit that things are bleak - some of the companies I work for make me sick - one small client made 300k profit last year and pays almost all of its employees minimum wage (hospitality) and then it goes on about being ethical :lol::ph34r: . Real scummy capitalists!

Felt the same, now I'm leaving my job and starting a course in Sept. Will spend my hard earned house deposit on a career change instead. One that I can take anywhere in the world. Would prefer job security and satisfaction over a mortgage millstone around my neck anyday.

My favourite "choke on my sandwich at lunchtime" moment was when I noticed that The Times has a leaflet in advertising Times Mortgages.... resold from a BS of course...but still???
