So what can we expect to see in 2018? With the Tories in charge, there are a whole host of things which could be brought back to glorious Blighty now that the precedent of Blue Passports has been announced. So a few members of the RBS community have scoured social media to come up with the following list of exciting things the Tories could reintroduce or, in some cases, have already brought back.

Black passports (because the old ones weren’t blue);


Rickets (already making a comeback);


National Service;

Playing God Save the Queen at the end of cinema shows;

Ration Books;

TB (see “Rickets" above)

Fox Hunting;

Public Hangings;

Bear Baiting;

chimneys (to provide employment for child chimney sweeps);

Scarlet Fever (See Rickets);


For anyone who ever wondered what it must have been like to live in Victorian Britain, there’s a good chance you’re about to find out.
