Priny expected to sleep with everyone he invited into his ‘society.’ Local people still call his seaside palace ‘the Turkish brothel.’ The palace was built to Priny's precise instruction with nine designer kitchens - including two for pastry's and one dedicated to ice-cream. When in residence, Priny ordered 100 course banquets every single day!
Tollpuddle Martyrs: The Oath Law
Early in the Napoleonic Wars, 1803-15, unpaid British soldiers threatened to mutiny against their appalling conditions of service. They swore collective Oaths to down tools if months of back-pay did not arrive.
In reply, George 3rd's Parliament passed a Law against Oaths! Anyone taking an Oath would be jailed or shot!! King George made no attempt to pay his soldiers the back-pay he owed.
The Oath Law was used in 1834 against six farm labourers, who used Oath's to swear-in union members. This was the first call to workers to take part in a non-violent protest. The implications of which frightened the life out of landowners. Who had no sane arguments for purposely starving their workers.
All six farm labourers were sentenced to Seven Years Transportation!
Passing sentence at Dorchester Assizes Judge John Williams had the audacity to state. ‘I am not sentencing you for any crime you have committed, but as an example to the working classes!’
The labourers, who history records as the Tollpuddle Martyrs, were trying to form a union to fight the repulsive Corn Law. Laws designed to make the rich richer and the poor poorer (The Corn Laws and the more recent Poll Tax Bill & Privatisation Bills are made, or not made, at the express will of the Head Of State. No forward looking Head of State would have flogged-off public assets. Unless she believes the British public have no future).
As the British Empire grew wider still and wider, royal profits from the slave trade, the opium trade, the arms trade, tea, cotton, sugar ect, ect, were banked abroad. Then as now, unctuous nominees were only to willing to do the royals bidding. "Royal historians" would have you believe the first four Georges and William 4th squandered their ill-gotten billions. In truth. From the reign of George 1st this family have needed to bank their loot offshore - in case the public get heir act together and hang the parasitic "royal" bastards. When the doddering King Silly Billy (William 4th) came to the Throne the family were immensely rich. Arguments over who-got-what led to rumours his bastard son’s were planning to bump-off the precocious, ten-year-old, heir presumptive Princess Victoria Saxe-Coburg.
