Yeah but to be fair that's because the Government at the time were basically running like an autocratic state, controlling everything from industry to agriculture. They didn't care about being competitive on the stock market or making profit. It was 100% war effort, and no matter what troubles the population was going through they bit down hard and pushed on. But crime was through the roof, stealing from bombed houses, making counterfeit ration tickets and making bootleg liquor.

However after WW2 the government introduced a policy of Laissez Faire, meaning that the government no longer could interfere with business policy or prices. So now, all businesses are out to make profit and out do each other. But that also means that the country gets less money because they outsource their companies to tax havens, example in point is Starbucks Coffee.

So yes, England *was* more efficient in WW2 but that was because the government had full control over the countries infrastructure and resources. Now it's all in the hands of businesses and underfunded councils.

Plus there are more people to look after since there aren't millions of people fighting in Europe, but are back home needing housing, food, heating, medicine and transport.

I hope this helps put things into perspective for people. There will be a test on the differences faced by Cameron/Glegg government and Churchill/Atlee government next week. Class dismissed.

Winston Chruchill was a very intelligent man, but because our country was full of idiots at the time we didn't re-elect him.
#26 to #25 - anon (01/19/2013) [-]
actually, we didn't re-elect because he went about his campaign as though it was a still a war. He famously made a comment about the oppoisition and how we would need some kind of gestapo. Essentially he was great at wars but ****** everything else. 1925 gold standard wat

It's because people are lazy and generally ignorant and can't work together unless facing a severe danger. Some snowstorm? - no one gives a damn. Whole nazi army knocking on your door? - now that's something worth a team job...

...still a thumb up for you.

And now viewers can unite and thumb me back down to oblivion for stating my opinion...

A snow storm in Britain? We call that Tuesday in Canada. In one storm over the holidays, we got 50cm of snow (19.685 inches for Americans). ONE storm. Mind you, that was a freak one, but still, we got another more average one about two days later. And my mother still had to drive the car to work. What would happen in that situation?

I ******* hate being part of the pathetic UK race. How many other countries get feet up upon feet of snow?
We get 2 inches, multiple deaths, economy crash.

I was talking to people at the pub about this the other day. If we went into a major nation threatening war right now, people would get off their asses and work to help the country and keep us going and doing their part. Assuming we didn't lose that war, in the aftermath the recession and most of the economic problems would be resolved and people would be working their asses off instead of sitting around on job seekers.
War makes people work hard. Extended peace, luxury and living too comfortably makes people lazy and unproductive and vulnerable to economic downfall.

I like the snow because since nobody knows what to do about it, there's a chance I can have a few days off college.. Which is always good.
