Just came back from a day out at Waddesdon Manor,(Google it)... anyway, it's an old Rothschild pile from the 19th century... been there a few times, it's actually a pretty interesting place... just found out today that the fuckers never even lived there... it was just built as a sort of private museum to house some of their best shit,(paintings, furniture, etc)
Anyway, it's mostly staffed by elderly volunteers, and all you have to do is talk to a few of them for a bit about the Rothschilds to get an idea of just how ingrained the British class structure is, STILL, especially in the old folks... one woman was going on about what great humanitarians they were/are... giving money here and there, and supporting worthy causes, and still financing the upkeep of the Manor, etc, etc... these poor sods KNOW their place and are quite comfortable at still being nothing more than peasants emptying the Lords bed pans... it's that mentality that keeps the Royals in tea and biscuits and why the fuckin Tories can still win elections, even though we all know full well that a Tory government means cakes for the rich, and crumbs for the rest... because that's the natural way of things, in a civilized, well ordered society!
