    We were expected, and permitted to work as well Pete, I can well remember working on building sites at 14 or 15, by that age I wanted money for clothes etc ,and my mother didn't have it to give to me. At 16 we were after a moped, and that gave us independence. So together with having a job we were pretty much living our own lives at that age. By the time you were in your early 20s you were expected to be married and settled down.

    My wife works at a hospital with a couple of Indian lads, they both reckon that the British were the best thing that ever happened to India not least for the infrastructure that we provided. Not saying that we did'nt milk it for our own ends, but a lot of positives came out of it as well. The French had the second largest empire , followed by the Belgians , and Germans, all have skeletons in their own particular cupboards that they prefer to keep hidden out of the way. We seem to have this habit of judging the events of yesterday by the standards of today.

    Just as well Joseph Goebbels isn't around today, just imagine what he would do with the Internet and Social media .

    The very fact that some deluded clown could think of this garbage in the first place is worrying.

    When you think about it , there are only so many permutations of notes/chords that you can use together , be it in a minor or a major key, so given the fact that popular music as we know it has now been around for about 64 years you are out of necessity going to get repetition and accusations of plagiarism. However any musician/ artist draws upon his or her influences Two songs spring to mind immediately , Start by the Jam , which closely followed the Bass line from Taxman , and My Sweet Lord by George Harrison , which was similar to the Chiffons , He's so Fine.

    Mine can get a bit rosy sometimes, but I think Thatchers may have something to do with it

    Makes me think back 20 years or so when a similar word was aimed at myself and my colleagues, quite ironically we were generally the first people that they came running and whinging to when something went wrong in their miserable little lives, funny that.!

    It would be a bit boring if we were all the same Pete.

    The main difference between young and old in this thread, and probably life in general ,is that the young have been born into what constitutes modern life, values, social expectations etc, and know nothing different, whereas those of us of more advanced years, have had to adapt to significant change throughout our lives, irrespective of whether we agreed with those changes or not. Quite simply we are in more of a position to draw comparisons. .Personally I preferred life in someways 30 years ago , not so serious, and a lot more fun.

    I thought along the same lines myself, obviously ok when it suits.

    As I have previously said, it all depends upon your individual experiences. You're obviously a very bright youngster , and I doubt very much if you would remotely fit the example given by Kent. However , there are those that would probably perfectly fit his description,. In my time as a Police Officer, I got to see all manner of youngsters in different environments and situations. I've seen boys and girls p.ss.d to the eyeballs in town centres either trying to punch some poor devils lights out ,or rolling around on the ground being sick with everything on show. Others that I have met wouldn't dream of behaving in that manner. Not all are the same ,but that's not to say they're not out there.

    I prefer to think of it as reflection upon 40 odd years of adult life's experiences. Our opinions etc are generally formed through those experiences., good or bad.

    Fair points QS , funnily enough, my youngest lad produces music for computer games etc, so he is a mixture of both.I've no doubt at all that he would agree with you. He always says Im a miserable old git.
