About the Book

How then did the UK reach the ‘golden years’ of purposeful education, full employment, and adequate housing? More to the point, why did successive governments in the latter part of the twentieth century and early twenty-first century betray the British people by subjecting them to the overwhelming stresses of poor education, low-paid employment, and a housing crisis eclipsing even that of the immediate post–World War II era? I consider myself lucky to have been born in the UK. I also consider myself lucky to have lived through the golden years, enjoying prosperity my children and children’s children will only be able to dream of.


About the Author

Born at the beginning of 1952, I thankfully missed World War II by less than seven years, yet the effects were still being felt all around me. Rationing and bomb sites were the norm as I grew up in a once-great Britain still reeling from the effects of the most devastating war in world history.
