Do you remember sweets coming of the ration Gordon? We all rushed round to Jim Borees sweet shop to pig out on all manner of things.
Not a day one can forget even 70 years on.
Sweet rationing stopped in 1953 and all rationing finished with bacon being the last in 1954

A big mistake of course.



Just as the NHS was getting on its feet, so to speak, the government of the day inadvertently introduces today's obesity crisis!

Through the media.

All part of what they are taught about "austerity" and who to blame for it.

Or the alternative answer is ...

They don't and therefore have no idea that sweet things are making them obese.
On the other hand as people are finally admitting that future generations are (mostly) unlikely to be able to ever retire (therefore probably a good thing that life expectancy is starting to fall?) enjoying life to excess in all things (including sweets) and not expecting a right to risk free eternal life might be a sensible option.

In which case I suppose the question of whether or not Goodwood is an accurate facsimile of history or not may simply become an opportunity to split the concept into two parts and give each part a different focus.

Maybe they could get the VSCC to help set up some Handicap races? A somewhat period correct race format surely?

Surely it's apt that both on- and off-track activities are pastiches? Do you think there are classic clothing forums bemoaning the effect modern fabric development has on 1940s design?

Funnily enough the history lessons don't show the benefits of austerity, but that could be because they can't find any.

When the (ex?)missus had to teach the youngsters about healthy eating and the school changed its policy on what they were allowed to bring for meals/snacks it turned out that very few had to change their diets, most the parents were already well aware of what was good for their offspring. It was a much bigger issue for the staff!
Of course the demographic of the parents who's kids attend a very expensive school might be different to that which has an obesity problem.

Apart from the handicap races that filled Goodwood timetables they also had women's races, presumably such an event would be deemed sexist these days?

Better ask Serena Williams, she seems to have an extensive knowledge of the subject.

That's the trouble with you kids young Iain, no idea of true hardship!
You probably think not being able to buy a croissant on the cross channel ferry on your way to race someone else's historic car at Spa, is hardship.

When I was a kid we never knew where the next potato was coming from, and I had to darn my own socks.

Central heating was a strong peppermint ………………….. if you had enough ration coupons.

Made a man of me
