Defining words in modern British history.

#1
This is my list that I believe marks the decline in Britain in the mid/late 20th century.

1 Windrush

2 Decimalisation

3 Multiculturalism

4 Europe

Feel free to add to the list.

Two people on a bus in front of me had a whole conversation based around the exchange of the sentance "Like... it's like...SOOOOOOO.... obviously."

Nope - no idea what they meant at all, and not entirely sure if it marks the decline of Britain due to the chimpish nature of the conversation, or a refinement of it due to the fact that they managed to talk for 20+ minutes using no more than eight or nine words each.

How about:

communism

socialism

facism

All three widely used in the 20th Century and all contributed significantly to Britain's decline.

What I refer to as a Turing test failure. Shame we can't cull test failures......
