AS A child of the Sixties I agree with Nick Cohen that the "radical" ideology of the class of '68 prepared the way for Thatcherism. A few upper-middle-class women did well out of feminism, but most women are now far less secure than they were in the Sixties. A few black-rights individuals are now household names, but the average black is poor and getting ever more so.

The most spoilt generation in history has parented the most neglected children in history. It doesn't matter what race, gender or sexuality you are in England, it's class that counts - as the upper-middle-class 1968ers have proved.
