It's about not getting the unfair deal they expected but couched in equality language

It was totally common knowledge in 1995

I remember knowing and i was 13

The generation that took the most, and gave the least.

They can suck it up as far as I'm concerned, given they've had everything else on a plate their whole lives.

Rationing finished before the WASPI generation were born

Or are you joking?

And rationing still doesn't explain the earlier retirement age for women

Google tells me boomers were born between 1946 and 1964, rationing ended in 1954.

But let's not let facts get in the way of a good rant shall we.

Yeah I'm talking specifically about WASPI campaigners

Don't worry about it, it's probably a pretty niche area that would only interest employment lawyers

Rationing saved them from having to contend with eating disorders, obesity and body image trauma. Things the companies feeding their fat pensions shameslessly forced on the young.

I suspect few 4 year olds have vivid memories of the tail end of rationing

they probably dont remember it, they probably remember being told about it and they might remember that there was more boiled grey meat to go around after 53 and people started getting bananas again but I doubt that actual rationing figured highly in what was essentially a toddler's daily thought process

Someone has to pay. While I may have sympathy should the payer be part of the generation who collectively promised it to themselves as individuals without saving to pay for it or a subsequent generation?
