Australia has won 10 of those series to England's 5.

Four of those 10 series won by Australia were played and won in England.

Since the 1989 series there have been 43 Ashes Test matches played in England of which Australia has won 19, England won 14 and there were 10 draws.

So the only reason I can think of a "whole generation having no idea what it is like to see Australia win in England" is because that generation were hiding behind the sofa with blindfolds on too scared to look out to see their beloved England being humiliated by the convicts.
