Hi Helen Having worked hard for the last 56 years and not being left anything in a will, I don't take what I currently enjoy for granted, but I do consider that I deserve it. You say that inflation is due to "inevitable trends". I personally would not call a war inevitable. I also think exploiting the oil, gas and coal reserves is a lot more to do with money than global warming.

I would very much hope that the war and the pandemic are short term, 'short' being relative. Exploitation of our fossil fuels is a mix of denied permission and taxation that makes exploiting them undesirable. Decisions have been made by those who are ignorant of engineering/industry/low income. They are of the 'let them eat cake' mentality. That's not a knock to any political party but most of them.

This one is so obvious. Yesterday my wife went into town and forgot her mobile. So I said to my 2 youngest, if she wants us she will find a phone box. That got me thinking, and I asked my 24 year old if he had ever used a phone box. "No" was his immediate reply. I then asked my 15 year old daughter the same question. Her reply was to wave her mobile at me and ask "why would I need to?". Says it all.
