Quiz! Which decade should you vote to send Britain back to?

Are you 1970s Labour or 1950s Tory? Find out what your favourite decade says about you.

The right-wing press has called the leaked Labour manifesto, in which the party sets out plans to re-nationalise the railways and bring back trade union rights, a manifesto for taking Britain "back to the 1970s".

But here's the thing - accusations of wannabe time travel works both ways. Since Theresa May became Prime Minister, she has resurrected the divisive policy of expanding grammar schools - and dragging Britain "back to the 1950s" instead

So it seems this general election boils down to one question - which decade do you prefer? Sharp suits and big skirts, and sugar sandwiches for a treat? Or womens lib and some very dodgy TV entertainers? Find out by taking our quiz.
