Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ruari Quinn, Past Labour Leader, Minister for Finance, and now Minister for Education is famous for saying c. 1970, that "the 70's will be Socialist" and that Labour would remove the tyranny of work from people's backs by reducing work through automation, new technology, reduced working hours etc.

The irony is that people have had to work much harder ever since, now it takes two wage earners to support a family, and the hours, never mind the intensity has increased.
