'Crisis? What Crisis?'

The year is 1979
Relations between the British government and trade unions are at an all-time low. The IMF has agreed to bail out the struggling Exchequer, but on the condition that punitive wage freezes are implemented across the public sector. Strikes have crippled much of the country. Parliament is in deadlock. The IRA is a source of constant fear, and the National Front is on the march.
