Tales From A 1980's Man Down Under - Dozy Old Britain 20 Years Behind
It was easy to forget how advanced Australia was in the 1980's compared with Britain.
Look at the above.
Bendy buses, car sharing, comfortable long distance buses trains which ran on time and a postman who looked like Jim Davidson.
Remember this was 1980. Twenty years letter, Ken decided to bring bendy buses to London, councils encouraged car sharing and the trains ran slightly more to time.
'Dozy old Britain', as my old boss Woodrow Wyatt used to say. But at least Jim davidson is no longer on our screens anymore. That took twenty years to get him off, too.
