Women get the vote

Two days ago was the eightieth anniversary of women getting the vote in the UK - an obvious cause of celebration.. or is it? Let's look at the factoids.

Pre-women voting
1) Britain is an industrial juggernaut shipping its goods all around the world
2) Britain is an economic giant making other countries currencies' look like monopoly money
3) Britain has a military the fear and envy of every other country
4) Britain rules an empire on which the sun never sets.

Post-women voting
1) "Made in China"
2) Getting excited about two dollars to the pound
3) Budget cuts
4) The Falkland Islands

I think we can all draw the same conclusion here.
