People thought it was a ridiculous comment and mocked the tweet, causing it to go viral:
I do remember this. It was unremittingly miserable and shit. There is nothing glamorous or romantic about poverty.https://twitter.com/eu_no_more/status/1509952800981192706\u00a0\u2026

Everything was great back when everything was shitpic.twitter.com/D5LdUNL1SC
Yes\nIt was shitty\nConstant chilblains on my toes and whitlows on my fingers\nDeaths of elderly from hypothermia were too high.\n\nHouses so leaky that what heat you had escaped, increasing pollution (& asthma) through wood & coal burning.\n\nNot to be repeated unless you\u2019re thick.
Most of us do, and it was shit, which is why those who can, live in centrally heated homes with double glazing.\nWe also had rickets, TB and nearly everyone who got cancer died.\nMany people died in their 60s.\nDo you think we should make some people go back to those days?

Right wingers in the 70s: free markets will make future generations so much richer!\n\nRight wingers today: actually everything was fine in the 70s stop complaining.https://twitter.com/EU_NO_MORE/status/1509952800981192706\u00a0\u2026
House! You were lucky to live in a house! We used to live in one room, all twenty-six of us, no furniture, 'alf the floor was missing, and we were all 'uddled together in one corner for fear of falling
