Benjamin Posted January 17, 2014 Share Posted January 17, 2014 My bookish bent.. and convoluted mind, connects old dots perhaps where it should not. A quarter tax upon all Englishmen imposed to ransom Richard Lion-heart. So he'd be freed to live abroad, and toil in foreign wars for the Plantagenets.. Cement an empire for his kin to rule. Nought changes! Least of all the layman's lot. Which brings me to our recent malady of ordinary folk around the world; still suffering from the untouchable faceless new "Masters of the Universe." And what a pity there's no single dart to bring them down, like Richard Lion-heart. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
