Never so good?

The slogan outside this shop selling musical instruments is playing with a phrase from a 1957 speech by Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan. Referring to Britain's postwar economic recovery, what Macmillan actually said was "most of our people have never had it so good". Inevitably, tabloid newspaper headline writers and opposition politicians put this into the second person, and it became "You've never had it so good"!
