Nobody living longer because why the hell would they want to

Life expectancy not rising as fast any more

Left expectancy rises have ground to a halt because why would you want to prolong the misery of existence in today’s society, according to researchers.

University College London health expert Simon Michaels said that he was ‘deeply concerned’ by the slowdown in life expectancy, but was not even remotely surprised.

He told us, “You only have to look around you, Love Island, Brexit, Donald Trump – what possible reason do today’s elderly have to cling on to bring up the average?

“Honestly, I’m a little surprised the number isn’t dropping off a sodding cliff.”

78-year-old Alfred Williams told us, “When I was younger I was full of hope for the future, and a desire to hang around as long as possible to see where society would end up.

“But these days I just don’t see the point.  Most of you are too young to remember where a rise in nationalist populism takes you, but it’s nowhere good, I assure you.

“The fact that millions of people greeted Brexit like it was the bloody moon landing tells you all you need to know.

“Seriously, I have no desire to take the life expectancy average any higher than it currently is just to watch you young’uns fuck everything into the ground.”
