    Does anyone else just miss how simple life was back then? The great music, the great TV shows, the movies (Harry potter was still a franchise), the fashion, schools were better, we had a progressive labour government... i miss the 00's a lot in general but lately its been 2009. Anyone else just feeling sick with all the new technology and domination of social media?
    Objectively i have many reasons to be happier now but 2008 does still rank as the best year of my life in terms of how i look back. I was young, drunk, employed part time and meeting tonnes of women on top of having a great group of friends. It was incredibly fun.

    These days i naturally disagree with you on some stuff (a sniff of political bias in your OP) but the films are now all sequels, my social life is splintered (lots of friends but no close core), my sex life is more subdued and i have much less free time and a much more repetitive life.

    On the flip side i think that TV is no worse, i have more money, my belief in myself is pretty resolute and i enjoy the innovations being created, i am also much more mature as a person, much more self aware and have come to value values.

    Perhaps the grass is always greener on the other side.

    2000 was the best year to be born,
    Who remembers the Rubbadubbers, Tweenies, Storytime, Brum, Boo!, Come outside, The Koala Brothers, Pingu, Postman Pat, Fimbles...

    Lol, every generation says that, going back to our grand parents and even before it. Some things never change. We are no different.

    I remember the double dip recession. In January 2010 we had a growth of 0.1% if only we voted in Labour again our economy would have grown quicker.

    Your funny , still ignoring the facts , we had the fastest recovery in the G8, if you voted labour you'd have sky high debt . If my knowledge is 0 , yours is as least -25%

    But the rate at which it increased has fallen. The deficit has fallen . Labour would have increased the debt by more .
