I think you aren't getting any comments because it is too complete. Nothing to add. Good though.

I have nothing else to add

I'd love to lay claim to that, but G added that phrase in when he proof read it for me.

I like the bit about the ancient Greeks and the Agora goats.

Silver wrote:After the second World War, everyone was sick of the Conservatives and not having a viable alternative, voted in a Labour government which was when donkey jackets, unions and strikes were invented.
...ish. Atlee also gave up on the idea of Empire and to an extent oversaw one of the worst partition plans ever devised in history causing a civil war and genocide in India (alas this was actually one of the better thought out and executed plans by the Atlee government). The public quickly realised their mistake however though irreparable damage had been done and Britain’s economy barely staggered forwards.
Silver wrote:Control and mismanagement of the country was passed back and forth between the two parties until 1979 when Margaret Thatcher, otherwise known as the Iron Lady, managed to wrest no.10 from Labour’s James Callaghan. The Thatcher years led to the invention of yuppies, mobile phones and rampant capitalism while once again, unemployed poor people starved in the dole queue. Like many women in power, Thatcher got a bit above herself and tried to introduce the Poll Tax which was an unmitigated disaster. This led to a second Peasant’s Revolt (the first being in 1381) and a battle in Trafalgar Square where protesters armed with pitchforks, bricks and fake ID fought the law and the law won.
You can’t talk about Thatcher without talking about economic policies, hard line on EU funding, oil revenues and a small war.
Silver wrote:interest rates had rocketed to 15%
Which made all the people who really couldn’t afford houses give back the keys. This in turn allowed the economy, when released from the chains of currency pegs, to actually do very well just in time for Tony Blair to take office. Then years later we tried the other approach of keeping the printing presses busy which devalued what little savings some people had, which is leading to extreme stagflation & hence also general discontent (Maybe?). Still have to see how the Zimbabwe approach will work in the long term.
Silver wrote: Meanwhile, back at the Conservative Party, a new leader called David Cameron who was made entirely out of plastic and didn’t have any genitals just like a massive Ken doll, was revving up to challenge Gordon Brown.
Cameron really isn’t winning, Gordon is losing.
