When Jim Barrington left the League…

Following on from yesterday’s post (which, incidentally, has been our most-read blogpost ever), a supporter has emailed in some interesting facts. Demonstrating just how long ago it is since Jim Barrington left the League, here’s a list that will make you smile…

When Jim Barrington left the League:

  • John Major was Prime Minister
  • “Hooch”, the first alcopop, was launched
  • Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song” was at Number One
  • Alec Douglas-Home (Prime Minister 1963-1964) had just died
  • ‘Toy Story’ was at the cinema
  • “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” was the bestselling non-fiction book
  • The interest rate was 6.5%
  • The Ford Fiesta had a revamp to look like this.
  • The White House launched their first website but BBC News were still two years away from launching theirs
  • The European Parliament had just approved the name ‘Euro’ for its currency, but it was still six years away from being used
  • ‘Rogue trader’ Nick Leeson had just been jailed for six years
  • The Queen was urging Charles and Diana to seek a quick divorce

All very good reasons to Keep Cruelty History!
