I imagine all British kids in the 60's and 70's all growing up in brutalist housing estates watching Dr Who and Clangers and the Goodies and their current prime minister is a one of character who was meant to be a bully who learns a lesson but who escaped a broken tv set after a drunken abusive father broke the screen so he never learns and so is now PM. I love Clangers!

I think British politicians used to be drunk all the time. The collapse of the political class happened when they sobered up and we realized they weren’t any more capable.

...and I finally watched the video all the way through. Yep, that’s pretty much the essence of it. “What shall we do with this amazing new medium for communication?” “Dunno, give it to a bunch of people and see what they make of it, I guess.” Those were the days.

Yep the video definitely fit the bill!

Oh wow, thank you for pointing me towards Bjeteman! He's just moved into the flat that Ivor Cutler shares with Edward Lear in my head.
