I was talking recently to a Croatian woman (ethnically Serb) who's lived in 
London for the last 10 years or so - she genuinely argues that the 
conditions in communist Yugoslavia were better than those in Britain 
nowadays (and she's no fool nor naive, nor in a particularly uncomfortable 
situation here).

Anyone have much experience or thoughts on the distinct socialist model in 
Yugoslavia?
