Podcast: the gilded generation, one year countdown to the election and rise of the bores

Is it fair to describe today’s youth as the ‘gilded generation’? On this week’s View from 22 podcast, James Delingpole discusses this week’s Spectator cover feature with The Economist’s Daniel Knowles. With rising house prices, increasing levels of debts and a highly competitive jobs market, is the notion that the young have never had it so good a myth? Were things better for young people in the 1970s? And will today’s young generation witness a fall in living standards, compared to their elders?

James Forsyth and Isabel Hardman also look forward to the general election, which is exactly one year today. At this stage, who is looking most likely to ‘win’, whether it is another coalition or being the largest party? Do Labour have a right to feel more confident and relaxed? Is there a significant difference between the idealism of Labour and the managerialism of the Conservatives? And is George Osborne looking like a man who is looking ready to loose his job in 12 months?

[Alt-Text]


Plus, Cosmo Landesman and Lara Prendergast debate whether social media is turning us into bores. Is it easier than ever to ignore people who only have inane things to say? Or has the constant need to tell everyone everything spilled over from Twitter into normal conversations?
