So our Minister of State for Finance reckons all us pensioners are wealthy, does he?
The little shit thinks we have too much cash and that he has a right to hammer us for the fact?
Well, let me tell you Brian fucking Hayes why we have no mortgages. We have no mortgages because we paid the fucking things off. For twenty or thirty years we slaved to pay back loans at interest rates that often ran into double figures. We often went hungry but we paid our debts which is more than can be said of your fucking generation.
Let me tell you, Brian fucking Hayes why we have pensions. We have pensions because we paid for the fucking things out of our own pockets. For the best part of forty five years we put a chunk of our salary into our fucking pension fund and you have no fucking right to that whatsoever.
Furthermore, our pensions are paid for out of our money that we saved. Can you say that about your fat pension that you are lining up for yourself? No fucking way. You are going to grab yourself a government pension that we have to pay for.
I don’t give a flying fuck if fifty per cent of college students are on grants. That’s their problem. In my day, I went to college and my parents had to fork out all the fees with no fucking grants whatsoever.
So us pensioners came through the crash relatively unscathed? Why do you think that is? It’s because we weren’t so fucking stupid as to get telephone numbers loans. It’s because we survived previous recessions and know how to be fucking prudent. We weren’t fucking stupid and we weren’t fucking greedy. And we still have to pay for your generation’s mistakes, Brian fucking Hayes.
So, Brian fucking Hayes, you can kiss my gold-plated ass.
