    All Brits can get a job and save their money. I worked in retail at minimum wage, saved since I was 18 and now own my own home mortgage free and have a safe car.. I don't need cigarette, alcahol or daily rake aways. THAT'S THE CATCH.

    Parents working to support their kids future. What a crazy and illogical concept. Spend all your money and kick them out at 16. 🤡🌍

    It is like complaining that I was not born the Queen of England by having the fortune to come out of the right vagina!
    It is the luck of the draw.
    Complain to God if you must.Otherwise the Guardian should shut up.

    Yeah a friend of mine was given £100k deposit plus had his debts paid off by his mum, long time ago now. He was embarrassed by it. I don't know why the government cannot offer to loan deposits to all people. They allow people to build up massive amounts of student debt. Arguably a deposit for a house is more useful. They could pay it back the same way, off their pay. Otherwise you just continue the poverty with no way out unless they get lucky. Which isn't often.

    We helped our youngest daughter and son in law to get the deposit together for their house and our eldest daughter was helped by her in laws to buy their house. Our son managed by himself to buy a house but what business is it of anyone else? The thing is if we need care they will get nothing from our home anyway so why not let them have it while we ere still here? Live in rented homes and you get care paid for.

    The best indicator of social mobility is who your grandparents were.

    He said the poorest get £240,000 but the wealthiest get £6,500.

    Always look after your own first, remember there's no pockets in shrouds.

    My daughter is 19 and already saved €20000. She is studying to become a carpenter and mainly learn by working and earning a wage

    All monies will have been subject to tax at source. The fact is that the PAYE rates need to be set at the correct level to fund the Treasury spending, otherwise there'll be problems ad infinitum with increasing national debt, eventually to the point of doing a Russia and defaulting on the interest payments – that won't be good for England's reputation at all.

    Good parenting is a cause of inequality? My mum taught me to read before I started school, is that an unfair advantage? The only way you bring in equality of this kind is by holding better parents and harder workers back.

    It's an outdated term now = most people's mum and dad ain't got any money either !

    If they're talking about the Windsor family they would technically be correct.

    It's our money we paid the tax what's the problem.

    You might be beginning to realize that "all man are created equal" is another irrational socialist slogan. In fact, as Burke observed, people are born unequal depending on the sacrifices made by those that went before them. This is the essence of Conservatism and it refers to much more than money. i help my children because my parents helped me.
