Annabel Crabb has, in her inimitable way, nailed the issue of intergenerational equity:

How – if you were a young person today – would you see your seniors as anything but a grabby crowd of legislative brawlers who got their degrees for free and their homes for a song, and are conspiring together to have you foot the bill for their retirement as they drink the last of the Grange in the polluted ruins of the planet that is now exclusively yours to fix?

Are there any ethical elders out there?
