On this day

In 1974 Prime Minister Edward Heath announced a general election and appealed to the miners to suspend their planned strike.

And what a pompous, statist, arsehole he was. That period must have been one of the most miserable I have lived through; he and his Government were useless and Wilson was no better.

It would be another 5 years before we got some sense brought back in to our politics.
