Who did what to who? Why wasn't I told? What was Hastings fought over and when?
Why couldn't they "just get along"?


Edit.. Oh I've just Googled it. It happened before even the US was invented... Family infighting and jealousy. French Norse and Poms... like I said "couldn't they just have gotten along"

That was nearly 1000 years ago... Tarmie, get over it.Evil or Very Mad

That post was number 1066 from me. For those of you who think history started in 1607 the date 1066 is one most commonly known by English schoolchildren (well it was in my school days!).

1066 and All That: A Memorable History of England, comprising all the parts you can remember, including 103 Good Things, 5 Bad Kings and 2 Genuine Dates is a tongue-in-cheek reworking of the history of England. Written by W. C. Sellar and R. J. Yeatman and illustrated by John Reynolds, it first appeared serially in Punch magazine, and was published in book form by Methuen & Co. Ltd. in 1930.

Very bored.

Suffering from back trouble at the moment. Even getting the Silverwing off the sidestand is painful so riding has been halted for the present.

Anyway, the brain is still as active (or inactive) as it ever was.

Tudor propaganda! Perpetrated by various playwrights, particularly W. Shakespeare (who needed to curry favour with the Elizabethan court in fear of his own well being) and given credence by 1st Duke of Marlborough, John Churchill (an ancestor of Winston), who said "I take my history from Shakespeare".

As all journalists will attest, never let the facts spoil a good story! Thus was sealed Richard's fate. There is NO evidence that he murdered the princes in the Tower.


What I don't understand is why they buried him a car park! scratch

Æthered the Unready wasn't so much a bad king just badly advised.

As for Richard the Third, there's a campaign to have his recently found remains found under that carpark in Leicester moved for reburial in York Minster, he was the last Yorkist King of England.

Richard III had nipped into a local hostelry for a pint. He was buried in a carpark because his horse had been clamped by the NCP carpark attendant. R3 started an argument with said attendant who then hit R3 on the head with his ticket machine, unfortunately it was a fatal blow. Not wanting to get into trouble with his supervisor the attendant used one of the big potholes in the carpark to bury R3 in. He then covered over the body and filled the pothole in. Smile 

History is written by the victors, in this case the attendant kept quiet about it.

It must have been some ticket machine, as his remains show part of his skull had been hacked off!

Truth will out. I always suspected the parking attendant. History has been rewritten ... right here.


Now, about Henry VIII (8th!) and all those monasteries he destroyed, just because he took a fancy to a scheming slapper!

Henry VIII may have topped one of his wives and ordered the Dissolution of the Monasteries, but to me he was the public face of Tudor Crisps. Sadly you can no longer buy a "canny bag of Tudor". Sad Sad Sad Sad

Nor bottles of Stephens' fountain pen ink, or (more sadly) Gloy Gum*, the merest smell of which would transport me back to early skool days.

If anyone has a bottle ....... Wink 




*A brown coloured, viscous liquid glue made from cows hooves. Superseded by Prit Sticks.

Seems we've had most of our sporting clashes with the French in October - maybe we didn't do so well at home at Hastings but we definitely won the next 3 away fixtures - Trafalgar, Crécy & Agincourt... Smile
