K, so Mr. Teacher set this essay [To what extent was there a post war consensus from 1951-79?] and it's too widespread for my liking - having to take into account 25+ years of socio-political events and coming to a conclusion. Kinda having some difficulty, in what I should be including and how I should be structuring it...
I've included a definition of what the post war consensus is, as a part of my intro, hinting I believe there was one. "Middle section" will probably be something like from an economic stand point, there certainly was - with Keynesian economics (stop-go cycle of freeing/limiting legislation) being dominant for the "13 wasted years" and beyond (despite attempts to break away from this part of consensus).
From the sociological standpoint, the Labour Govt of 1964 to 1970, the "fairer society" part of the Consensus was certainly met by laws introduced/ammended by Roy Jenkins, and the liberal society spurred on by the youth revolution. Perhaps this can be true for the 13 wasted years, when there was a vast increase in the quality of life in British culture? (Affluence leading to technology leading to consumer culture seen across the board)
Apart from that I'm pretty stuck; not sure how to expand that, and what else to include to make the essay about 3 A4s... Any ideas?
... and the ones that won't
