howjsay Pronunciation Dictionary How Britain changed under Margaret Thatcher. In 15 charts | Politics What is the the legacy of Margaret Thatcher, who died today? The 1980s is increasingly being seen as deep history - 50% of the Datablog team were born in the late 1980s and were just toddling into school when she resigned in November 1990. If the past is a foreign country (they do things differently there), there is nowhere more foreign than May 1979, when the Conservatives entered Downing Street. These are some of the datasets which actually go back that far - mostly from the Office for National Statistics, and some from the excellent British Political Facts. She may or may not have caused it, but Britain under Thatcher saw huge economic, demographic and cultural change. Population The UK was a smaller country then - 56.2m people lived here, compared to 62.3m people in 2010. The population has changed too. We're living longer - life expectancy overall went up from 70.3 for men and 76.4 for women in 1979 by three years for both sexes by 1990. There are more of the super-old around now.

Hamlet: Act 4, Scene 7, Page 7 There is a willow grows aslant a brook That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream. There with fantastic garlands did she come Of crowflowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples, That liberal shepherds give a grosser name, But our cold maids do “dead men’s fingers” call them. There, on the pendant boughs her coronet weeds Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke, When down her weedy trophies and herself Fell in the weeping brook. And mermaid-like a while they bore her up, Which time she chanted snatches of old lauds As one incapable of her own distress, Or like a creature native and indued Unto that element. Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, Pulled the poor wretch from her melodious lay To muddy death. There’s a willow that leans over the brook, dangling its white leaves over the glassy water.

Les Voyages de Gulliver. Célèbre ouvrage de Swift, publié en 1726, les Voyages de Gulliver est un roman divisé en quatre parties, dont on lit principalement les deux premières : ce sont les voyages dans l'empire de Lilliput et dans le royaume de Brobdingnag. L'auteur disait dans une lettre qu'il adressait à Pope, un an avant l'impression de son livre : "Le principal but que je me propose dans tous mes travaux est de vexer le monde plutôt que de le divertir... Voilà la grande base de misanthropie sur laquelle j'ai élevé tout l'édifice de mes Voyages." C'est, en effet, la faiblesse, la vanité de ses semblables que Swift a voulu faire ressortir dans une fiction aussi ingénieuse que hardie; en conduisant successivement son héros chez un peuple de pygmées et chez un peuple de géants, il le place dans des situations et des embarras où la misère humaine apparaît sous le jour le plus ridicule, et il fait jaillir de cette combinaison une foule de contrastes inattendus et de comiques effets.
