Look, what more do you want, he fucked up responding to a major pandemic, he tried his best for population control!

 

;)

 

(Although iirc despite this thread's evidence, the birth rate in the West has started to level off...)

Yes it often puzzled me why people predicted there would be a babyboom during the pandemic.  Way too much anxiety and fear about health , jobs and the economy  about for it to play out like that. On top of that far fewer opportunities for new couples to meet during  a national lockdown.

Well, tbf I predicted that because people, cooped up together, long nights... :D

 

But it turns out younger folk on the whole prefer to have 1 or 2 kids tops now and are really good at taking precautions.

 

Either that, or they just wank each other off for all I know.

 

Right, that's my work in stunning Gooseberry done for the day. :lol:

I think homeschooling may have put  some parents who were planning on having a second child off the prospect!

My friend only gave birth in July 2020 and she is already 4 months pregnant with her second and i'm pretty sure she would have not got pregnant if it wasn't for lockdown.

My father said, 15 years ago, that they were the last generation to have it better than the ones before. Now, I wonder why he got children... anyway, I'm pretty pessimistic right now, and think a huge population crunch is coming in a few decades. Maybe millenials like me will not live to see it, but the next generation will.

My brother is 8 years older than me. He did his degree when the grants were at the highest real term levels. I did mine in the last year before student loans were introduced. My father who grew up during the war encouraged us to continue our education because that option was denied him. We have struggled financially but I feel for my daughter's generation.

I think the UK will be worse my eldest sister moved to Germany last year to be close to her daughter.
