Notes:
Harry Leslie Smith was born in 1923 in Barnsley. King George V was on the throne. Stanley Baldwin was Prime Minister. There was no NHS, no welfare state. Those who could afford to took care of themselves; those who couldn't, suffered. And then out of the rubble of the Second World War Harry's generation rebuilt the country. They wanted to build a better, fairer world for their children and grandchildren. And they succeeded. But now Harry sees history repeating - from NHS cutbacks to immigration policies and everything in between. 'Harry's Last Stand' is a searing modern polemic that shows, with the indisputable force of lived experience, why the past shouldn't stay buried, and the future is ours for the taking.

Should be part of the school curriculum! Even if your political views differ, Harry's view is worthy of reading. Insightful and forward thinking. Scarily accurate. He has a point. What have we actually learned?
