I have lived through:
- the oil shock
- the three day week
- numerous market/property crashes
- dock strikes
- miners' strikes
- power workers' strikes
- sugar shortages
- petrol shortages
- power cuts
- potato shortages
- the drought of 1976 and corresponding water shortage
- toilet roll shortages (yes, a genuine shortage as opposed to a panic bought "temp out of stock" issue)
All of the above might have been, at the time, inconvenient; but they are in the past (forgotten by many) and we moved onwards and upwards.
Whatever we face now will pass, and we will move onwards and upwards!
