    John Humphries never understands anything. It’s a standing joke in our house how little prep he does for an interview and how dim he is at understanding what he’s being told. The man is an absolute arse.

    John Humphrys particularly struggles to understand structural inequalities.

    I suspect it's increasingly the case that the older demographic have more spending power now - no kids, more likely to own a home and have no mortgage etc. My dad bought our large, detached family home in London for 1.3 times his salary, between us we earn about the equivalent of that and our terraced family home cost 8 times our combined salaries!

    I'm not sure he does tbf. It always sounds like a performance to me.

    If it is a performance, he should probably be banned for encouraging damaging stereotypes of privileged middle aged men

    I agree, but they spend it on different things. And they have strong brand loyalty - most of us do. Advertisers want the people who don't yet have brand loyalty. Plus, if you can attract the 20ish market, then the 30ish and 40ish market will recognise it as coolish, so if they don't have any particular brand loyalty for, say, phones, they'll be swayed.

    I wonder if that's changing though - the 60+'s grew up in a world with far fewer brands - so you are an A or a B person and that's it, whereas I think for my generation that might hold less because we grew up with more choice and have changed around more. I don't think I have much loyalty to any brand, be it cars or clothes.

    He seemed to be treating her as though she was giving her own opinion and decided that his was better. He is an arse. I'm not claiming that he only does it to women, he's not discriminatory in his arsery but nonetheless it was painful to listen to.

    Too many responses to this along the lines of 'not all men' or 'would not happen in X country'. As if women around the world shouldn't be scared when popular porn site searches like this turn up.
