During the years of rationing a strange cult grew around the 'Top of the Milk'. This was the thick creamy layer on the top of unhomogenised milk which would be granted to Father to pour over his breakfast while the children were left with a watery residue that, I think, had something to do with badgers and tuberculosis. After breakfast he would beat his entire family with a large stick and then go down a mine.
Gold Top was a premium milk - with an eponymous gold foil cap - which pandered to this cruelty by encouraging seperation.
Democracy was only restored by the introduction of homogenisation and school milk
