Another excerpt from An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain, this time an up-sum of the 1960s as seen through the eyes of a caller to a late night local radio phone-in.
It’s not all that dissimilar to the recording I posted two years ago.
Well, I blame the 1960s with all those Open University sociologists on the telly preaching their permissive attitudes to the immigrants with their long hair and big lapels I mean that Dr Beeching cutting all the pound in half like that no wonder we lost the Empire I blame the unions closing down the car factories so that Britain could produce homosexuals I mean high-rise housing no wonder we can’t afford to keep the Empire it’s all the fault of those pop stars and long-haired footballers kissing each other after every goal no wonder the British motorcycle industry went down the pan what with all these socialist town planners letting the Russians put their satellites over England they should bring back hanging I blame all those Austin Mini skirts and dangerous new drugs like crimpolene and LSE but that’s burn-the-bra women’s lib for you I saw Ipi Tombi twelve times absolutely disgusting but ethnic nudity is different they should bring back National Service instead of fashionable child-centred learning and comprehensive Arndale Centres I mean I BLAME THE SIXTIES!!
You’d think Prince Charles would have better things to do.
