The People's Republic of Mortimer

Not connected with John, Caroline or Penelope as far as I know, this blog was brought indirectly to our attention by Peter Black.

A sample (in the course of a discussion of "Batty Great Aunt Margaret Hodgepodge's" troll about Englishness)

Henry I - 1100 - hm, everyone knows medieval history is pointless and rubbish, but let’s see what Wiki says…

"Upon his succession he granted the baronage a Charter of Liberties, which formed a basis for subsequent challenges to rights of kings and presaged the Magna Carta, which subjected the King to law.

"The rest of Henry’s reign was filled with judicial and financial reforms. He established the biannual Exchequer to reform the treasury. He used itinerant officials to curb abuses of power at the local and regional level, garnering the praise of the people"

Ha, strike him out! Last thing we need is a medieval monarch who is more liberal and competent than the Labour party.
