A clever book, but not one that rang bells for me. The basic premise is that children born in the late 60‘s didn't engage with politics. I subscribe to that view, and consider myself a witness to the period- both my children fall into that category, as do their friends. My generation, on the other hand, were angry and sought a revolution to kick out the old guard. Maggie Thatcher did just that and ambitious professionals like myself were energised by hope and the permission to be successful. My children absorbed this and were too self actualised to be influenced by comedians, soaps on the TV or mediocre rock bands of the era. Politics and football had little to add to their lives. The book illuminates a few dark corners of recent history, for which I am grateful. Some neat observations of Tony Blair, that I will try to remember.
