Major Memories

The re-emergence of John Major this week, right though he is about Universal Credit, serves to remind some of us that the mention of his name still calls to mind his Spitting Image puppet before his real person.

And here we are again, back in the Britain of my adolescence, in which the Prime Minister, the Government and the governing party existed purely and simply to be the objects of national and international ridicule, with absolutely no suggestion that they could conceivably win the next General Election.

I feel quite young again, even if I don't look it.
