Brits becoming Meldrews
By PAUL THOMPSON

A GENERATION of Britons are turning into grumpy Victor Meldrews, a survey reveals today.


Just like TV’s moaning pensioner Victor, people aged 35 to 54 complained of being dissatisfied and disillusioned.

They felt overworked — and saw no prospect of things getting better, according to the survey by pollsters Mori.

Research chief Ben Page said: “We consistently found people in this age group were cross and fed up. There is rising dissatisfaction.

“They witnessed social change while growing up but feel life hasn’t turned out as they expected.

"They feel they have nothing to look forward to. A lot of them are asking, ‘Was it worth it?’�

Those quizzed in the survey said they were disillusioned with Labour AND the Tories.

They do not think transport and the NHS will improve — or believe that “those in charge know best�.

Mr Page said anyone who answers Yes to these three questions, is one of the new Meldrews:

Are you fed up with both Tony Blair and Iain Duncan Smith?

Do you feel that life is not all about work?

Are you worried about transport and the NHS
