Agreeing with Rudman


Sometimes it really is embarrassing to be a baby-boomer. We’re the generation that enjoyed free school milk, free university education and free healthcare, then, after sucking those teats dry, turned off the taps and told those following that the free ride was over.

Now, my fellow oldies sit back in their million dollar, debt-free homes, moaning about a piddling $15 for a transport swipe card which will give them free travel on Auckland’s buses, trains and ferries for the rest of their lives.

Ungrateful indeed.
