    Mashed potato and baked beans for xmas dinner anyone?

    That's what my ex's neices had when we all went to her mothers one year.

    They're in their late teens now. No idea if they're still so picky.

    Just to take the guesswork out of most of the DE readership fall into the ABC1 social grading. 61% of ABC1 class identify as middle class of the DE readers in this class more than half are 35+ years old and about 75% are in households with no children; lots of empathy there then!

    The point here is do we believe that pandering to the opinions of an aging middle class with no children is the way to go?

    Whilst the ageing middle class is the dominant demographic age profile the policies will be aimed at them - the number of 50 to 60 year olds is a time bomb waiting to go off as they all retire and expecting to live another 20 to 30 years, that’s why pensions will continue to push money to the old at the expense of the young.

    What the young forget is that those who are now old spent an awful lot of money on raising them to adulthood.

    The ageing Middle class won't disappear, they just get replaced by the younger generation as they in turn mature.

    The young radicals of the 60s are now the conservative elderly. It's a natural cycle.

    Besides that, weíve got loads of middle income earners that are lazy bastards now and canít be arsed to cook and just order some garbage from deliveroo.
    Iím more condemning of the lazy than the poor.
    I know where you are coming from mate, and I agree with most of it, but I come from a family who never had ready meals or takeaways (well maybe once every 3 or 4 months) and to be honest growing up we had very little.

    There is a complete lack of education in schools when it comes to cooking. I pretty much self taught myself after learning the basics from my mum. All I learnt from cooking at school was how to make a flow chart.

    Also like Wes said, fresh fruit and veg can be brought a lot cheaper than ready made stuff, but people are just too lazy and are addicted to the sugar and salt in premade foods.

    Same, growing up I can remember folk going rabbiting, picking blewits, and fruit/berries to make pies. Lots of people had a greenhouse or grew some vegetables as well.
    You can eat well with some effort and little money.

    Difference now is it’s cooler to sit in MacDonalds posing with your smart phone and easier to order a two-for-one from one of the three dozen takeaways in town.
    In fact, that tells you a lot doesn’t it, two MacDonalds, a KFC and I’ve lost count of the other fast food places, all in a relatively small town.

    What a unique situation. Good job we don't have to pay for the next generation coming up ontop of that pension bomb shell.

    Is there anything other than takeaways and charity shops of Outram Street?

    And true but foraging for food. I used to get rabbiting with my uncle, picked rhubarb from a garden at the bottom of the street and blackberries from medan bank.

    I make it sound like last of the summer wine but I'm only 32 haha.

    Not on my kids schools, they get lots of lessons on nutrition at infants and then one year of practical at college , they have to follow recipes at begging of year and by year end come up with something themselves .

    My youngest can cook for herself and often does , she can bake very well too.

    I grew up with a war baby dad who remembers going hungry , the cardinal sin in our house was wasting food. Nothing is thrown , always reused later on the week.

    Our schools teach other life skills like shoplifting, twocing and benefit fraud. Cooking is for mugs.

    Oooooohh, Gravy.

    Northern Boys love gravy.

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    Lucky kids! It may have changed, but when I left school in 04 I learnt to make a pineapple upside down cake and cowboy pie, which was essentially sausages, beans with mashed potato on top...

    My son is 10, so I am doing like what my mum did with me and teaching him to cook. We made a Brazillian style peanut curry the other week (really basic but really tasty) and enchiladas this week. Simple stuff but interesting enough to get him to try new foods and he has loved it so far.

    I think I must’ve subconsciously learnt a lot from my two grans, amazes me I still remember some of the old Polish recipes.
    Part of the problem in school was the presentation of subjects. They could make anything mundane and boring.
    Music is an example I always think of, we had xylophones, no Mac Suite with GarageBand, electric guitars, drums and cool sounds. Xylophones FFS. “Today we are going to attempt to play something mind numbingly boring from three decades ago that none of you can relate to”...

    Hes played a masterstroke, gets the blue passport for the leavers and still farms out work that could be done here to the Europeans which is what the remainers want.

    The odd thing is that in all countries apart from England, National symbols have great importance.

    One of the questions for taking up French nationality is 'Name the national symbols of France', and the answers they expect include everything from Marianne to Haute couture. (Let's not have the very predictable white flag jokes please)

    It is rather sad that in England anything traditionally regarded as an English or British National Symbol has been regarded as Far Right for the last 50 years.

    To make a good gravy, a really good gravy in no easy thing. Not some shite out of a packet but proper meat sauce.
