Real Old Farts don't speak in hipster concatenated three-letter quasi-milspec jargon, Alistair, no matter how many young things are looking on and listening in.

We are the generation who owned dictionaries and occasionally opened them. We are the Thesaurus Generation, not afraid of words with letters and phrases with spaces in them.

We are, in short, the Rolls Royce generation, the generation that Harrods would sell one. What more can I say?

(Except that we cost a billion pounds and no-one can afford us).
