"I wonder if they even realise how the left's anti empire adgenda resulted in the post empire industrial collapse."

you can wonder about political history theories as much as you like..

Don't know anything about you or your career,
but I'm sure middle class historians didn't suffer as much under thatcher,
as my dad and the rest of the work force
when the only major factory employer in town was suddenly closed down...

..and yes he did get on his bike eventually..
10 miles each way cycling in all weathers along a busy dangerous dual carriageway,
working in a notoriously bad conditions factory run by some of the most abusive managers
in the west country...

That probably helped send him to an early cremation..

The heat in that sweatshop factory wasn't much cooler..
