Summer of Love

We have just watched the BBC's Summer of Love programme, in which the usual bunch of self-promoting media folk told how they changed the world in the 1960s. Let me explain to them who really changed the world.

Martin Luther King, speech in Washington DC 1963
Roy Jenkins, Murder (Abolition of Death Penalty) Act 1965
Leo Abse, Sexual Offences Act 1967
David Steel, Abortion Act 1967

And some other Men In Suits.

Never mind, the music was great.
