Have We Not Learned From History?

Much has been written for some time about Labour - be that Old or New - and the result of Labour's current attempts to govern the United Kingdom - and the condition in which the attempt has left the United Kingdom.

David Jones, MP, blogs about the instance of the same numbers appearing in the Bulgarian national lottery and comments that whilst the mathematical chances of this happening are astronomically high, we humans express surprise at such an event.

Conversely, why do we humans express surprise or despair at the failings of a Labour government when history tell us that it has happened previously - Wilson, Callaghan, Blair - especially when the odds are not that 'astronomically high'?

Oh, apologies I forgot  we don't teach history anymore, do we?
