"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.


  1. Anybody else's paragraphs not working?

  2. That's a euphemism, right?

  3. Are you using the new Blogger Dashboard by any chance?

    1. Tim - Most definitely.

      MJ - Yes. I think I need to brush up on my html coding.

  4. Follow these instructions to return to the old Blogger Dashboard:

    Look in the top right hand corner of your dashboard, under your profile photo.

    See the widget symbol to the right of the box that says “English”? Hover your mouse over the widget and you’ll see that it says “Blogger options.”

    Click the widget and scroll down to “Old Blogger Interface.” Click on it and you’ll be returned to your old Dashboard.

  5. Thanks, MJ. Now got the following message:-

    "The old Blogger interface will be removed in the coming month."

    Oh, well.

  6. Or alternatively you could compose your blog posts using Live Writer. That would solve it. Just sayin'
