From an abandoned station in London (tube). This poster predates Britain’s entry to the “Common Market”. See how the mugs like me were persuaded to vote ‘Yes’. Farming has since been decimated by Britain joining the EU with very few of the next generation willing to follow their fathers onto the land into what is now a highly regulated paper chase with prices lower than production costs.
When The Times speaks, the world listens, it says. And the world goes bust in the process. Time to stop listening, if you still are.
In 1973 most of us still trusted the media. I was eighteen and in my second year at Oxford (went up aged seventeen). Unlike my fellow students who were strongly left-leaning, I was interested in business and thought joining the EU would be helpful to what in those days was called ‘industry’.
It’s never too late to wise up.
