Let me remind you of some things about the time of your youth in Britain. We did not have a Christian society at that time. In fact church attendance has been in decline for many decades now. In 1979 Margaret Thatcher came to power as Prime Minister. She sold off all the countries silver to private enterprise believing it would encourage competition and therefore lower prices. The opposite was true. Privatizing water, gas, electricity, telephones, steel and coal. We saw the longest and bitterest strikes ever in the UK. We witnessed boom and bust economy with high inflation and 17% interest rates. She sold off millions of Council houses at a fraction of their worth and people took out mortgages on them they could not afford. When the interest rates soared they lost their homes and went into negative equity, meaning their homes were worth less than the mortgagge they had taken out to buy them. Millions lost their jobs and were thrown onto the unemployment scrap heap. At it's height, unemployment was 3.5 million. Life wasn't simpler, it was much harder for poor families to cope, and there were no food banks to fall back on in those days. No cell phones, few color TV sets, and the best computer on the market was a Commodore 64. There were good parts of that era, but a lot of bad parts too. Not many people would trade places to go back there I can assure you of that.
