Age divide

    What do you make of the divisions between old and young people which have grown since the brexit vote and have existed with ageism to both young and old? In addition what about the issues that affect this divide such as the housing crisis in which many young people cannot afford their own homes or the pressure on health services which comes with an ageing population?

    I know no such divisions, just a few crazy lefties blaming old people for everything.

    I don't think the divide is as large or distinct as most people make out. Yes there are differences between those of the older and younger generation, most notably technology use, but there are people both old and young who share the same attitudes.

    Where do you draw the line at old though? Plenty of 30 and 40 year olds voted to leave the EU.
