    Papers today are saying that todays kids are indulging in less sex, less drink and less drugs than their parents / grandparents. One hopes they are still loving rock and roll !

    Quote "Mintel said it proves that today’s young people are “the most sensible” generation in recent memory and “far more conservative” than their parents who came of age in the 1960s and 1970s"

    Does this mean that we more "mature" folks will have to keep the spirit of rebellion going far longer than we should have to ?

    No more passing the flag of revolution onto the younger generation for us !! We will have to keep the flame of rebellion alive fuelled by our old age pensions.

    Fellow Motorhomers, it is your duty to grow old disgracefully, for who else will teach the ancient ways of excess to the "conservative generation". Proudly sing our battle song, as Mr Ian Dury taught us so well, "Sex and drugs and Rock and Roll", sing it loud !!!

    Rallies should henceforth be renamed "Raves" and meets shall be called "Parties"

    Long live the revolution !! Power to the People !

    I will do my bit regarding the Sex and Rock & Roll... (y)

    Never been into drugs, so will pass on that... :blush:

    It`s probably because of the NO drugs that I have the Stamina and fantastic good looks to carry on with the others... :cooler::BigGrin:(y)

    I thought I heard that on the radio news but it did include "11 to 15 year olds"

    I really think it is dependant on which street in which town they carried out the survey
