England had unseated Winston Churchill as Prime Minister in the wake of a Labour party victory on behalf of the working and lower classes of England’s society and thereby ushered in social reforms like nationalized health care and the trumpeted end of the class system of divided privilege and opportunity. In reality, Whig factions imposed other limitations that effectively thwarted the overthrow of social control by the privileged upper classes, and the youthful generation all over England was rankling at the inability to reap the new privileges they had been promised. For example, they now had educational opportunity at newly built universities but no high status jobs were forthcoming.Jimmy’s anger is bred of the resultant social war but it is born of the personal psychological agony of watching his father die over six long months after having gone off in the grand spirit of democratic freedom to help fight in the Spanish Civil War as so many idealistic young English people did. Jimmy says that he learned at the age of ten, while watching over his father’s death and keeping him company, to be angry and helpless. It is his helplessness that fires the anger into an invective against his wife and the other people he knows, and especially against the upper classes and their (at least sometimes) unearned and undeserved privilege.
