Gert, Daisy and the State

Floggit’s was an unremarkable 1950s BBC radio series that starred Elsie and Doris Waters who played Gert and Daisy, owners of a village general store. Gert and Daisy had been popular staples of mainstream variety since the 1930s: they were not exactly at the cutting edge of comedy.

However, as I argue in the post on my personal blog the sisters articulated a conservative mistrust of politics, one that underpinned the post-war ‘golden age’ of party politics.
