Moral decline or sexual revolution? How Westminster has come to terms with the permissive society The post-war decades have seen a revolution in moral behaviour. Changing attitudes towards sexuality, censorship and decent behaviour have meant that politicians have struggled to keep up. In Makers and Manners Andrew Holden argues that in the six decades since 1945 Britain has changed from a society in which public morality and the criminal law were rooted firmly in Christina doctrine and the sensibilities of late Victorian England, to one where the very existence of a public morality is questioned, and the laws governing the behaviour of individuals are affected more by the European Convention on Human Rights than by religious doctrine. He revisits the landmark court cases and changes to the law that have tested and defined the new moral order and examines the results for politicians and the public alike.
