    Yes.

    That crossed what little remains of my mind earlier when listening to some Liebour harridan on the PM programme.

    I'll have to get the flared jeans and the 3 piece beige suit out of the wardrobe if ***** gets in.

    Interesting that you quote the inflation rate for 1974.
    It was 16% in 1973 under Ted Heath (Tory)
    It went up to 24% in 1974 under Ted Heath (Tory) who then called a snap general election, believing he could get a majority.
    When he didn’t, and couldn’t for a coalition with the Liberals, then Labour came to power. The next year inflation dropped back down to 16.5%.
    It further declined to 8.3% in 1978.
    When the Torres came to power, it went up to 18% in 1980.

    ...but hey, the facts don’t fit the poster.

    Next one... the 3 day week for electricity

    Any idea which party brought that in? Hint: it started on 1st January 1974.
    Any idea?
    Would it be the Ted Heath Tory government who brought it in?
    Did it stop 3 days after the Labour government came to power?

    Again, facts are something the poster avoids.

    Grocer Heath.

    He's still a ****, just a dead ****.

    The telly going off at 22:00 every night did for him.

    That and losing the 2nd election in 1974 giving rise to the Sainted Margaret, DA's fantasy gf.

    And the Gnomes of Zurich.

    They'll be back soon.

    The conservatives move to monetarism was after 1980, it has been our economic model since.

    Personally, I quite liked the 70's.
    I'm sorry, but I'll make no apologies for this
