A rambling old mansion


This guest post is from a superb comment by rogerh in response to Knowing and thinking. Concerning our political elites...

Ignore them, prattling about them only tickles their egos. Get on with something interesting, translating from a dead language, or growing cauliflowers - anything.

As I see it the public inhabit a rambling old mansion (Britain) and at some time hired staff to answer the door and clean the windows. The blighters found the keys to the cellar and the deed box and now charge us rent to live in the stables.

As I said translation or cauliflowers - it's the only antidote.

SV - Chatsworth House. I thought I'd use somewhere I've been to.

Surprisingly golden.

We'll make it up there, one day.

Nice gaff.

SV - it has been cleaned recently.

Roger - it's nowhere near a pub though.
