In the UK: "Age War" about to erupt

"Young people face a nasty choice between paying high rents for crummy accommodation, commuting life-sapping distances or living with their parents for much longer. This is in danger of becoming the Sorry generation, named after the sitcom in which the sad Ronnie Corbett character still lives with his mother into his own middle age.

Forced to delay making homes of their own, the Ben generation are marrying later with the obvious consequence that they have fewer children. That is creating a vicious downward spiral."
