    What has happened to these videos?
    They used to be simple to watch.
    There seems to have been some sort of website “upgrade” that has rendered them unwatchable.

    Watched it, interesting.

    Didn’t we have something similar in the 1980’s and 30 yrs later look at us now.

    Why do I get a feeling that in 30 yrs from now there will be a similar problem.

    In 2042 a prime minister stating “we are not paying enough” and “we will have to work longer”. I’m glad I’m mortal, life is getting rather too repetitous for my liking.
