The BBC is replaying the 1992 general election all day to confirm that we are all very old

By Laura Dennison

It’s been 25 years.

It’s been 25 whole years since the election in which John Major’s Conservative Party won a surprise majority against Neil Kinnock’s Labour, disproving many polls.

The BBC Parliament channel will be showing the 1992 election all day to commemorate the anniversary, as a treat for politicos.

Many political figures familiar today were, at the time of showing, young parliamentarians.

Lots of people felt very old, remembering watching the election all those years ago.

…confirming that we are all very old indeed.
