Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Skimmed your article and a few thing came to mind.

  1. You live in England, not in California.

  2. You still have royalty in this modern age and apparently, these folks still hold political power behind the scene.

  3. I just hit Wiki and dug this up about your mighty "House of Lords"

"Unlike the elected House of Commons, most new members of the House of Lords are appointed.[3] Membership of the House of Lords is made up of Lords Spiritual and Lords Temporal."

i.e. they're a bunch from the 1%

Bottom Line: England is still a feudal country. Today you're England, tomorrow Egypt, heading to being Palestinians. Get used to it.

They tried to assimilate me. They failed.
