    missing word

    Hello,

    is there someone who could tell me what is the missing word before Britain in this video:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcEXZcv2Q-c from 1:33 to 2:10

    We will remember this decade as a time when.....? Britain began to peel away from modest respectable veneer when a new generation of some worshippers and pleasure seekers began to take over. A sunny optimism permeated everything. We began to express ourselves in new and different ways. It was the permissive age when women wanted to experiment with the way they looked and when men grew their hair threw away their suits and dressed instead like Court Justice ? ( who is that?) among other things. But most memorable of all

    Thanks

    I am not a teacher.

    The first one is 'staid old Britain'.

    The second one is 'court jesters'.

    Re: missing word

    Of course, confusing justices with jesters is nothing unusual.

    Certainly true in any country

    but in no any language does it sound so right and nicely:

    justices / jesters

    lawyers/ liars

    Re: missing word

    We also have "circuit" courts which refer cases to the Supreme Court. You often here "circus court" instead, like "the ninth circus court was overturned again."
