Someone, somewhere hearts us

We won't find this love in the United States.
No, the reason why I have always found Xers intriguing is because I think they are jolly good sports. They don't raise embarrassing questions on the subject of inter-generational equity.

Boomers got fee-free tertiary education over the 15 years to 1987 and yet when Xers turned up to uni what did the government of the day do? That's right, in came HECS tertiary education fees. And not a word from Generation X. Or, more correctly, not an organised social revolt, which I am sure would have been the boomer response a decade or so earlier.
