A far less rosy picture of our national culture emerged from The Decade the Rich Won (BBC2, Tuesday of last week and 25 January). This was an appalling recital of, from 2008 onwards, governmental economic intervention on an eyewatering scale: trillions of pounds pumped into the system to ensure that banks and financial institutions don’t collapse, bringing down with them the whole system. But every move made the rich richer and the poor poorer.
Speaking about how climate change will have an impact on the trees presented to the monarch over the next 50 years, the Queen ‒ who has planted over 1,500 trees all over the world ‒ quipped: “I won’t be here though." We saw not just the highs, but also the lows, of our recent island story: the appalling poverty and living conditions of the post-war nation whose crown she assumed; hostility to immigrants; the miners’ strike; industrial collapse. The transformation of everyday life and attitudes: technology and the Pill changing women’s daily drudgery and subservience; acceptance of same-sex relationships; an emerging multi-cultural and multifaith nation; IT revolutionising everything.Platinum Jubilee beacons will also be lit throughout the UK, as well as in the capital city of every Commonwealth country.
