Pam Jarvis on Gen Jones 

Pam identifies personally as part of Generation Jones, and has discussed Gen Jones publicly numerous times. In April 2023, she wrote: “I am horrified that the PMs of my ‘Generation Jones’ age group were Cameron, May& Johnson.” In July 2023, she wrote: “At the end of this month, I will glide into my mid-60s, a late baby boomer or ‘Generation Jones’ grandparent, who is very aware that I (or my parents) picked a good time for me to be born in the UK; long enough after World War II to miss post-war austerity and at the start of the golden age of the welfare state (free milk and orange juice for everyone). This came along with it a well-funded state education, an optimistic time for scientific advance and a progressive primary education set to a stellar 1960s soundtrack.” In February 2024, she wrote: “Boomers are a very small minority in school leadership now, the youngest are 60 this year if we take the classic 1945-1964 as the definer,& many retired early. If we accept the Gen Jones hypothesis, that would set the age even higher.  Generation Jones – Wikipedia”
