In the spring of 1988, Britain lost its mind. Public executions. Lynching. A gunfight at a funeral. Four million chickens dying in the aftermath of an interview on regional TV. We’re genuinely surprised you don’t remember.

In the second of a three part series we examine the aftermath of the SAS’ very public killing of three IRA members in Gibraltar, as an establishment ties itself in knots trying to explain how three terrorists so determined to avoid casualties that they will go to extraordinary lengths to ensure their bomb only goes off at a specific time on a Tuesday afternoon are such a threat they have to be shot in the street on the preceding Sunday.

We also take a look at Edwina Curries egg-ceptional efforts to make eggs terrifying! YES! EVEN OMLETTES WERE SCARY IN THE EIGHTIES.

Along the way, Nazi saplings! Pork scratching fatalities! Claire improves her snatch. Gareth doesn’t like egg puns. John has a business proposition for former England goalkeeper David Seaman. Edwina Currie is surprisingly vindicated.
