Never Had It So Good

Never Had It So Good (an autobiographical book by local author Diana Cordwell)

"It was the decade between the War Years and the 'Swinging Sixties'. A somewhat neglected decade lacking an identity. It was the decade the then Prime Minister Harold MacMillan told the party faithful at the 1957 Tory party Conference that 'Britons have never had it so good.' It was the decade I was born, and it seemed pretty good to me. I was born halfway through the 20th century - December 20th, 1950. This decade was my childhood. Here is that story" - Diana Cordwell.
