Quote:
Home Secretary Amber Rudd has suggested Britons could only book a holiday abroad if they went through the Foreign Office before Margaret Thatcher came to power, in a speech at a centre-right thinktank. (Politics Live, Guardian)


I think it was rather more than a suggestion if the following quote (same source as the one above) is accurate:

Quote:
“I remember my father, who set up a business, saying to me that if you wanted to get a telephone line in your business it could take months, it could take years,” she told the guests at the launch, in previously unreported remarks.

Those were extraordinary days then, if you wanted a sandwich on British Rail you had to be pretty hungry. If you were going on holiday, you booked it through the FCO rather than through Thomas Cook or Booking.com. Those were such different days and most of us, until very recently, thought that those days had gone for good.

Amber tinted Glasses. (Similar to Rose tinted, but more Sepia) edit: I haven't worked out if she thinks days returning is good or bad)

@tinybgoat

Yes - I had trouble with that, too. Good old days? Bad old days? Must have confused and conflicted a lot of "Brexiters" who read the article.
