Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I tend to look back on it as a period when there was a lot wrong with the UK, but that the solutions offered by thacher were just a cocaine rush that left us in a worse place.

We had cheap housing available for nearly everybody, if there were no jobs, there was a generous benefit scheme that meant that nobody went without food, clothing, warmth or shelter, we had a functioning NHS that kept us all healthy.

Frankly, there's a fuck of a lot of that which would make the US happy right now, let alone the UK.
