The UK has a new Prime Minister and he is James Callaghan and told reporters that the mess in the country was not over yet. He was not kidding.

“There is no soft option,” he said. “I don’t promise you any real easement for some time to come.

“There can be no lasting improvement in your living standards until we can achieve it without going deeper and deeper into debt as a nation.”

It was also the week that Howard Hughes died at the age of 70.
