So I ate about a third of the cabbage and hope my brain will improve tomorrow. Except that I'm out at the museum so will do nothing until late on. Did you know milk chocolate was banned during the war, milk was in short supply you see. Instead you could have a nut or fruit bar, hmmm, they cost a fortune now. The British population was supposedly at its healthiest during WW2 because there was shortages of everything, especially fattening stuff. It must be said however many folks could not get fat as they never had enough to eat before the war, especially if there was a large family. The Labour government of 1945, there was a Labour Party in those days, not a Conservative 2 Party as now, the Labour Party changed the world for the better in 45. The NHS, nationalisation and rebuilding houses all while working together for the common good. Only grasping Tories disagreed. Thatcher destroyed the idea of 'service,' and working together. Instead it was every man for himself, especially her friends. George Osborne works the same way but without the intellect.
