"Historian Dominic Sandbrook takes us on an eye opening journey into Britain in the 1970s."
Well, not really eye-opening. Same old shit, really. And Dominic was born in 1974 and now lives in Chipping Norton so what the fuck does he know about the 70s or your ordinary person?
People wanted more in the 70s and they got it. They bought and decorated their own homes, they took foreign holidays, taking their food and drink with them. But they also discovered wine and sexy shortarse Spanish waiters. The Heath Government privatised Thomas Cook and Lunn Poly and the miners, furious that the holidays they couldn't afford had been sold off, brought the Government down.
The working class Marc Bolan wore make up so miners grew their hair and David Bowie made bisexuals attractive to teenage girls.
Edward Heath took us into Europe and let in those hordes of Asians who had been kicked out of Uganda. There were street demonstrations protesting about the influx and about Heath's French accent.
Said Asians and thousands of London's financially cleansed white working class moved to Peterborough.
Peterborough was the soul of the 70s.
