The time the Brits started changing their manner,
This review is from: Strange Days Indeed: The Golden Age of Paranoia (Hardcover)
I recently have read Francis Wheen's political book, i.e. Strange Days Indeed." As a former columnist for the Guardian, he recalls a number of drastic scandals conducted by policians and their close relatives and friends and notorious incidents executed by celebrities and religious leaders, and he provides the detailed minutes and abstracts taken from the articles in the 1970s. His findings do not only include political scandals but also peculiar reviews of pornographical films and radio programmes.
Some British say M. Thatcher discreetly destroyed their country. Having read Francis Wheen's summary of American and British politicians scandals, I can see they profoundly influenced British both good and bad way and it can be called "pessimistic period".
