I've already gotten angry about this but I'll do it again
-People did complain government advice and messaging was confusing or ineffective, they also originally encouraged people to harvest veg at the wrong time.
-people were demonstrably unhappy with the way the government was handling it - do people not know what happened to Chamberlain? How Churchill came to lead in the first place?
-Churchill did actually complain that they should have built more spitfires prior to WW2.
-There was a special ration book for vegetarians
-The women's territorials complained about their uniforms and they were changed to suit them
-People hoarded, there was black marketeering, people did ignore air raid sirens and blackouts - "put that light out" isn't just a jolly comedy phrase, but a thing that ARP wardens had to put their lives on the line to remind people to stop being so fucking stupid.
-I recently learned that the "keep calm and carry on" posters never made it to print largely because everyone they asked thought it was a bit sinister and oppressive.
people can fuck off, I cannot wait for these morons to die out.
