Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm sure it varies from country to country and party to party, but the Fine Gael/Fianna Fail coalition currently  in power in Ireland clearly favours the older, propertied class in all its actual policies, if not its rhetoric. That would not be a particularly controversial point to make in Ireland atm.

Below is a comment by a US Millennial to a Boomer relative who was arguing against student loan debt forgiveness:
I'd be more compelled by your argument if your generation decided that they were willing to pay back the the tax payer subsidies that made their education so much cheaper than the current generation.
Your "I got mine!" attitude is not very civic minded or patriotic. And it is common. And is perhaps why "okay boomer" has become such a wide spread meme.
