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. β€œWhat shall we do with this amazing new medium for communication?” β€œDunno, give it to a bunch of people and see what they make of it, I guess.” Those were the days.

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.
