If you didn’t pick up a copy of the Sunday Times this week, you will have missed quite an interesting article on the sixties by Dominic Sandbrook. It was taken from his new book called White Heat: A History Of Britain In The Swinging Sixties, which was released at the start of this month. I’ve yet to pick up a copy, but if you have, please add your comment below.

The Times article focuses on the flipside of Carnaby Street and Kings Road – the poverty and prejudice that affected a far bigger number than the swinging few. Luckily, it’s online and well worth a read if you have five minutes:
