Probably the scariest picture of all time


Mrs T just before winning the 1979 election, looking bonkers. In spite of the Saatchi ‘Labour isn’t working’ posters, unemployment trebled when she got in power. Just been reading Andy Beckett’s When the Lighhts Went Out which is a superb history of the 70s. He does make the point how unlucky James Callaghan was. Stitched up by a load of union leaders who made a Tory govt inevitable. Turkeys voting for Christmas etc
