Does the Guardian have no sense of history?
I think that the invasion and fall of France in May 1940 followed by Dunkirk, and the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force that Churchill had to face probably rank some way ahead of the flooding, Glasgow airport and foot and mouth.
While not quite on that scale Harold Wilson’s first month of his 1974 government was pretty horrendous with the aftermath of the miners’ strike, the oil crisis and Northern Ireland.
I know everybody is eulogising Gordon at the moment but this Guardian piece is getting a bit silly. Have their journalists no sense of history?
