I MUST take issue with Mary Dejevsky. The three-day week took place in 1973-74, under Edward Heath; "rubbish wasn't collected" in 1978-79, the twilight of the Callaghan years. Problems burying the dead affected only Liverpool: they were frozen in ice-rinks. Regrettable, but of no national consequence.
