Its strange, I thought with so many persons on here having a working class background the site would have been alive with comments and queries.  Is there no labour clubs left in St helens which could organize a trip, whats the trade council doing, members relations committees of the co-op. Am I just living in the past or has it just become easier to punch a keyboard or watch the tele................

Yes, looks a fascinating exhibition. And for an old Harris Street resident like me, so many familiar sights. As for its political messages, they may have resonated sixty years ago but politics have moved on since then with political and social boundaries becoming blurred

Think it is highly debatable that politics has moved on, some might suggest it has slipped into a quagmire of greed and self seeking egos. But we wont debate it here Alan as I know we would have opposing views and this little bit is about BJLs excellent informative post, as I mentioned earlier, tis probably I living in the past [which often seemed a materially poorer time but a more honest and moral time]

To be honest some of the Political issues highlighted are pretty much the same as today. Look at the one about the tax dodger and also the one about Pensions.
