    Default Has egalitarianism failed England?

    Seems the country was far more successful when everyone knew their place and a elite upper class made the decisions, while the lower orders provided the cannon fodder.
    Now we have council house yahoos running things and all they care about is making a quick buck for themselves.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Are you saying David Davis is not fit for office?
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    If by successful you mean winning wars and having empire, then maybe the country was more successful, but that success was enjoyed by far fewer people.

    You'd just be a prole in a plutocracy.
