The British disease
The British disease was a derogatory term given to the United Kingdom and its economic stagnation in the 1970s, also described as the sick man of Europe. The term relates to a lack of social vitality of the UK during industrial disputes in the 1970s. According to conservatives, causes of the British disease included taxation rates of up to 83% income tax at the highest marginal bracket.
