Poor babies

Written by 

Your old mate is constantly surprised at what snowflakes we have bred in the so-called ‘millennial’ and ‘generation Z’ types.

According to the latest research, many of these little darlings are now being ‘diagnosed’ with climate change anxiety, triggered by their distress at looming and anticipated threats about the weather.

As a mate of yours truly says, “If these self absorbed flakes are our future, then God help us.”
