Young British stand-up comedian Andrew Lawrence tackles a current touchy issue:
If there are any old people at home listening to this I want to say: Congratulations. You’ve done a wonderful job. You messed up the environment, you plunged us all into this global economic crisis, gave yourself cheap housing, full employment, free education. You had a wonderful time. You sold my generation down the river. Now you expect me to pick up the pieces of your broken world. Ha ha ha, you disgust me, old people!
These days when kids get out of university with their degree and their five-figure student load debt, there’s no jobs for them ’cause you old people won’t retire. You just go on working year after year clogging up the job market. Then you do retire, but you don’t die! Why won’t you die?!
But thanks for tuning in.
