I don't think Londonderry is that prosperous. I believe it has some of the highest levels of unemployment and social deprivation in the UK.The problem with the youngsters in Derry is that they hear all the old tales. It's everywhere, the murals, the museums, the talk in the bars and the schools. The Troubles largely defined Derry for the past half century.
If you're in your teens now hanging out in the Bogside or Creggan, large parts of which have become Troubles theme parks with busloads of tourists stopping off to get photographed at Free Derry Corner or getting the tour around the site of Bloody Sunday, you might feel you missed out on all the crack.
Sure, only a tiny proportion of them will get swept up, but that's all we're talking about here, a couple of dozen youngsters and the Boys of the Old Brigade in their 50s and 60s recreating their youths (just for the record if he's 53 he'd have seen some action in his day, as he would have come of age in the Hunger Strikes).
Meanwhile apparently drug addiction and suicide rates are soaring in Derry, despite Derry being transformed now into actually not an unpleasant and fairly prosperous town. Drugs and youth suicide were unheard of in Derry during the 70s and 80s when the place was a God forsaken hellhole and half the youth were running wild burning, bombing and rioting.
Make of that what you will.
