The Sun said we’ve gone back to the ’70s – 13 funniest and most brutal takedowns
To the Sun – no, stick with us please – where its front page went viral today after it suggested the UK had gone back to the ’70s.
Here’s a little bit of what it had to say ahead of this week’s rail strikes, the biggest for 30 years.
‘BRITAIN is in danger of grinding to a halt this summer as teachers, binmen and posties threaten to join railway workers on strike — causing chaos not seen since the 1970s.’
And it prompted no end of comment as you might imagine. And these 13 responses surely said it best.
If you mean we're outside the EU with low growth, high inflation and a government that wants to bring back imperial measurements and grammar schools, then yes. pic.twitter.com/GoO5UDbaAI

Both governments in the 1970s who had excessive union trouble fell because of it, so I’m really not sure this is the winning line they think it is. pic.twitter.com/D7djr06DMt

We told you to vote to go back to the 1970s, and then we cheered when you voted to go back to the 1970s, and then we called anybody attempting to prevent us returning to the 1970s a traitor.
Imagine our shock at Britain returning to the 1970s. pic.twitter.com/1Wi2d8DlTa

12 December 2019: A vote for Labour will "return us to the industrial carnage of the bleak 1970s".

The Sun said the UK would return to the 1970s under Jeremy Corbyn. Corbyn lost and Boris Johnson is our Prime Minister; helped in a large part by The Sun. Clowns. pic.twitter.com/uhQl0tE1TC

1. Didn't you say the opposition would return the country to the 70s if it gained power?
2. Your reactionary disinformation has been a contributing factor in the regression.
3. *You're* announcing? Seriously? I set up a website and wrote two books warning about it (& you). pic.twitter.com/yzWXqWnQLm
