Well. Twitter seems to be in a bit of a state. That’s not new. But this week’s debate is over whether neoliberalism is really a thing. Related Posts2003 – The Iraq War Protests (20 Jul 2015) 2002 – The Salt Lake City Winter Olympics (13 Jul 2015) 2001 – September 11 (6 Jul 2015) 2000 Read More
This could be an interesting way of exploring what this whole “post-1970s thing” is, if indeed it is a thing, which it probably is but neoliberalism probably isn’t the right word, but it might be, but it probably isn’t.
I will almost certainly talk more about this in due course. But my immediate thoughts are that “Post Consensus Britain” is an important and growing sub-set of contemporary British history. It has some distinct parts to it – but to separate it off from the wider study of post-war Britain would be a mistake. It will be interesting to see what my fellow history-didn’t-end-in-1979-ers think.
