Wildcat strikes across the nation, workers complaining about immigrant labour, no transport running, industry paralysed – did we suddenly get hurled back into the past? The next thing you know, the Black & White Minstrels will be back on TV. Then we’ll know we’re dead and have gone to Hell.
Actually, when I turn on TV I get the feeling that the present is the past.
‘Come Dancing’ = ‘Strictly Come Dancing’
‘Stars In Their Eyes’ = ‘X Factor’
Bruce Forsyth = Bruce Forsyth
Larry Grayson = Alan Carr
‘Dixon Of Dock Green’ = ‘The Bill’
‘Minder’ = ‘Minder’
Fanny Cradock = Hugh Fernly-Whittingstall
Etc Etc….enough!

    . . . and now the whole Carol Thatcher ‘Golliwog’ episode. Your prediction about the black and white minstrels show proving eerily accurate!
