You can’t lift yourselves out of recession with short term stimuli or with high taxes.

That was one of the messages that John Major communicated in this nine minute broadcast from 1992 (when Britain was last in recession).  We see the former Tory leader (now enjoying a measure of rehabilitation) tour Brixton – where he grew up – and he talks about his love of the House of Commons, about multiracial Britain, his Citizen’s Charter, the NHS and schooling.

As with 1992’s tax bombshell PPB, we are grateful to the Conservative Party’s Archive for allowing us to republish this broadcast.

After eight minutes the video climaxes with some memorable blasts of Purcell.
