    I'll start with Amber Rudd, "It definitely is worse if you're a woman, it's worst of all if you're a coloured woman."

    Then there's Angela Smith, “It’s not just about being black or a funny…”

    There's my brother in law, but he's not black or a woman, does he count or is there an actual point to this post?

    Amber is only a week or so from me, so definitely a 60's lass - no finer time to be born

  6. Am I missing something here?I hope this is a fun thread and not a one that'll turn into a political slanging match. Rudd and Abbott are both plonkers,but let's not go down that road. Anyway,going back to the thread title. I was born in 1960,so although a child of the 60's I only really remember things in detail from around 1969/70 0nwards.

    If you remember you were out of control then you weren't really

    Nothing to do with when you were born but about your upbringing and life experiences .

    Child of the seventies.

    People older than me and people younger than me balk when I drink straight from the hosepipe.

    I had the time of my life in the seventies, despite the fact that it was a miserable decade. Racist, homophobic, sexist and intolerant in many other ways too. Safety at work was non existent and many people are paying the price for that now after spending years breathing all sorts of crap into their lungs with no protection, despite the dangers being well understood by then. I engaged in dangerous work practices that would be unacceptable now as a matter of course, and I was expected to do so without complaint.

    And apart from '76 it always seemed to be bloody raining.
