What does its future setting add to Cold Comfort Farm?

Cold Comfort Farm is set gently but irresistibly a decade or two after its original publishing date, with video phones and the Anglo-Nicaraguan War of '46 and so forth.However, setting the action in the future doesn't impact the plot or characters in any particular way, and although Gibbons places many movements and genres in her satirical sights I don't get the impression futurism or speculative fiction are among them. It seems like a peculiar choice for a novel most famous as a satire of the "loam and lovechild" genre.What does setting *Cold Comfort Farm* in the future add to the novel?
