First one: which decade in British history should you have lived in?

QUOTE
Which Decade In British History Should You Have Lived In?

You got: The 1980s

The ’80s was a decade of unflattering shoulder pads, excess, and affluence – if you were rich and living in London, that is. For the rest of the country, threats of pit closures and industrial decline meant life was decidedly tougher. At least the music was good. The ’80s saw a boom in home technology with the introduction of more affordable VCRs and a massive rise in the number of home computers available (although they were still very expensive/a bit crap). Sadly, the first Nintendo Game Boy didn’t come out until 1989, so you couldn’t even do that when you were on the picket lines.


I would've preferred to get the 90s tbh, that sounds cool. I guess the 80s wouldn't have been too bad for me though.

I got the 1960s

The 1960s was a revolutionary time of social change in the UK. Homosexuality was decriminalised for men 21 and over, abortion was legalised, and the introduction of the pill meant a little bit more freedom for some people. If you were cool and rich in the ’60s, fashions included short skirts, platform boots, and lots of makeup, famously modelled by It girl Twiggy. The ’60s was the era of the postwar baby boomer teenager, who had not had to live through a war like their parents and grandparents. The BBC started broadcasting in colour in 1967, ending years of awful snooker commentary.

Not bad.

Isn't surprising- particularly after my choice for the celebrity laugh.gif

Not quite sure how, but I got the 1970s huh.gif

QUOTE
The 1970s in Britain was a time of bad polyester suits, disco, long hair, and BEARDS. Stick deodorant finally gained popularity in the UK in this era, which was a blessing to all the people wearing polyester suits. As with the ’60s, British music was actually still pretty good at this time (according to your dad). In 1974 strikes by miners led the government to introduce a three-day working week in order to conserve electricity. While this sounds amazing, it was actually pretty terrible. Towards the end of the decade there were mass strikes around the country and one of the coldest winters in history. Margaret Thatcher became prime minister soon afterwards. On the upside the first Pot Noodle appeared on British supermarket shelves in 1977.



Having lived through them, I can safely say they had their moments, some of them good, others not so good.

You might have even been alive during this exciting decade in UK history. Margaret Thatcher’s reign as prime minister ended in November 1990. The first website was built in 1991 and dial-up internet came to the UK in March 1992, while the first PlayStation came out in 1994 – indoor kids finally had something fun to do with their time. Britain’s main international exports in this era were the Spice Girls and the battle between Blur/Oasis. At the end of the decade, people seriously worried that the “millennium bug” would make all technology stop working – luckily for us it didn’t.

I do have a penchant for a lot of 60s music and fashion so I can understand this I s'pose.

I'm glad that I got the 1990's. This decade was a very special and enjoyable decade for me!

You got: The 1910s

This decade started off with the death of King Edward VII, who was succeeded by George V (the Queen’s grandfather), marking the end of the Edwardian era. If you were a young man, from 1916 onwards you might have been conscripted into the armed forces to fight in World War I, which was definitely awful. For women the suffragette movement was getting into the swing of things, which would have been good if you enjoy protests and blowing up postboxes. Despite their considerable efforts and war work, women still didn’t get the vote until 10 years after the war ended!


Well it is one of my favourite periods in history! (no for the war though)

The statement about women getting the vote is wrong.Women over 30 got the vote in 1918. In 1928, the voting age for women was reduced to 21 (the same as men at the time).

Well, I do like suits, cheesy disco floors on a night out and absolutely am a fan of beards <3 I'll leave the long hair to Joseph but the first sentence applies, so yeah ~

You got: The 1950s

British people in the 1950s had “never had it so good”, according to prime minister Harold Macmillan. This might have been true for some people, but if you lived in London you had to watch out for the smog, which was so bad in 1952 that 4,000 people reportedly died as a result! In 1954 Elizabeth II was crowned queen, and a year later 14 dire years of food rationing finally ended. Oh, and fish fingers were invented!
