Many have commented that voting Labour would take us back to the 1970’s as if it would be a bad idea. Like any decade, the 1970’s had its faults, but it also had its fair share of fond memories too.
We had no computers, smartphones or social media; instead we had social interaction.
We had no self-checkout tills; instead we had personal service with a smile.
We had no nanny state or compensation culture; instead we had commonsense and personal responsibility
We had no We had no over-cautious health and safety; instead we had fun and games.
We had smartly dressed police officers patrolling the streets that were respected by the public and feared by the crooked.
Education was about the three R’s not social engineering.
We had GP’s that could see you in 24 hours not 24 days.
We had boys and girls; not a myriad of genders types
We celebrated Christian culture without fear of offending other religions or the agnostic.
If life is for living not existing, perhaps harking back to the 1970’s may prove less of a turn off than many would suggest.
