Your Earliest Political Memory?
In his interview on this blog earlier this week Adam Rickitt said his earliest political memory was the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. Dizzy is worried that it was his too. Croydonian, who's a similar age to your humble servant, says his earliest political memory was Watergate. I was born on 1962. My first political memory was the power cuts and the three day week in 1974. I would like to say that my first political memory was Mrs T abolishing school milk - which I always hated - and that set me on the hallowed path to Thatcherism. But I can't. Because it wasn't. What is your earliest political memory?
