lmao, the novel invented in the XVIII century! Guess that Cervantes was writing poetry when he wrote El Quixote.

It is impossible to kill civilians, but false Americans can, and it is necessary as hypocritical pirates of aggressors.

Less is still evil. Shouldn't require an empire to rule the world. If we're going that route I'd give it to the NAZIs they at least had cool uniforms.
Robert Drake id agree, id argue America is the less of the 3 evils

Robert Drake and if it weren’t the Americans it’d be the Russians and if it weren’t the Russians it’d be the Chinese. Who’d you rather out of the three?

It is worth noting that the Scottish Enlightenment- the age of great thinkers and philosophers like Adam Smith, Sir Walter Scott and David Hume- came AFTER the Acts of Union 1707. Something the current Scottish separatists would do well to remember when they want to drag us back centuries and erase hundreds of years of shared history.

The only people being screwed out of their countries are Europeans, Americans, Canadians, and Australians. According to your ilk we MUST take endless numbers of third world savages. We MUST!

Samuel Merten (3 months ago)
Perhaps, but for a curator and rising presenter, it can be very serendipitous to have a distinctive and thus recognizable speech pattern. It can't be denied that when you hear her speak, you hear Lucy Worsley. I expect it can be partly credited with her success where there is so much competition.
I’m pretty sure Lucy’s pattern of speech isn’t seen as an impediment it’s literally the way certain people speak from that area. That’s like saying a southerner is being grammatically imcorrect when they mesh you and all. I guess you could see it as that but it’s regional too.

+Layne Summer What were we supposed to do with a bit of land so manky that even you guys couldn't find a decent use for it. After your guys had run away wetting their pants, our soldiers had to make a bonfire out of a big white building to keep warm by. When it had all burnt out there was nothing worthwhile to do so they left. Glad to hear that, after 200 years, you've manage to get your flag back up. We'd have left you one of ours, except it seemed a bit sacrilegious to waste a Union Jack on that flyblown swampland.

This is why Scottish independence is hollow. Some mild oppression in Scotland apparently permits them to go hand in hand around the world oppressing everyone else. We can't tell the difference between the two. The Scots should thank the English simply for allowing them to be their attack dogs.

Its important to note that George II banished the Highlanders to the America's and other destinations. It was to decimate and control any potential future uprisings. What Cumberland did to the Scots was deplorable and he was, and remains, a butcher.
Vince White (2 months ago)
Andrea Kollo they also created highland regiments to keep the ones back home quiet.
Rod Parsons (2 months ago)
Decimation consisted of the offending unit being paraded and the first nine soldiers in every maniple of ten being ordered on pain of execution to beat to death the tenth man. This was the severest unit punishment and reinforcement of discipline in the ranks. Except in the current semi-literate popular usage, it is not a synonym for annihilation, elimination, eradication, extirpation, etc. The total loss is, after all, not more than 10%. Q.E.D. As the ironic joke goes, with many groups of nine on a parade ground standing around single fallen bodies, one surviving soldier saying to another (somewhat relieved) "You know this decimation is not so bad after all..."
Simon Broberg (4 months ago)
Don't know about decimate, decimation is when you kill one in every 10 of your soldiers to keep them under control Roman tactic. I get what you mean though

Kimdino1 (1 month ago)
+Centrist Philosopher Hanover, Saxe-Coburg and Windsor are all the same dynasty with straight unbroken line of succession throughout. There are no sidesteps or other mechanisms of dynastic change, not even the small jump to a nephew. Victoria was a Hanover & the family name only changed to Saxe-Coburg because social norms meant that a wife adopted the name of her husband. The Windsor family name only came into being as a bit of PR during WWI when the king realised that a German sounding name was not good for their image. So he adopted the name of the family home i.e. Windsor Castle. btw If previous form was properly applied the dynasty name could now be Mountbatten but the pressure upon Elizabeth to adopt the husbands name no longer applied. And Mountbatten was an anglification of Philips German family name 'Battenburg'. Yep, another topping up of German blood into the British royal family, he's from the Royal House of Schleswig-Holstein.
David (2 months ago)
Mostly they are superficial changes because children take the name of their father and women sat on the throne hence the changed from Hanover to Sax coburg and Windsor is merely a name change on paper. It is the same male line from Victoria, the last Hanoverian. The Plantagenets came to throne in this manner too. The Tudors and Stuarts all came to throne as descendants via a female link to the previous House. Henry Tudors mother was a Beaufort descended from Edward III, Henry VIII mother was a Plantagenet as daughter of Edward IV. After Elizabeth died they went back 100 years to find the only remaining Tudors who were the descendants of henry tudors daughters including the Stuart Kings of Scotland. When Ann died there was again a jump back 100 years to find Elizabeth stuart whose grandson was George I. While the last jump back excluded 50 Catholics the line is unbroken going back to 1066 and even further thanks to last Norman marrying the grand daughter of the Saxon pretender.
Centrist Philosopher (3 months ago)
No, a few more than that if we go from King Alfred on... The British - it's three: Hanoverian, Saxe-Coburg and Windsor
KickAss Dude (10 months ago)
Not distantly related at all. William III (William of Orange) was the grandson of Charles I. George I was the great-grandson of James VI/I. It's just more diverse because England/GB/UK (unlike France and other countries) fortunately allows it to go through the female line so women can inherit and so can their descendants.

The aristocrats ran out of money, once they had to start paying their workforce. There were plagues and wars and poor health chewing through their free plebes as you call them. If aristos had been more frugal and taken care of those in their service(which was the deal from the feudal times on), they'd be still be wealthy, have a cheap or free workforce and be able to keep their fancy houses. BTW, this is what your post looks like when it's EDITED? What a tire fire it must have been before.

Kimdino1 (1 month ago)
James I was effectively a non-entity contending with having to rule two long term enemy nations while keeping the Catholics at bay. Charles I was an arsehole who viewed England as his personal plaything & tried to bleed it dry for his own amusement. He provoked two civil wars and, when thwarted, he tried to organise a French invasion of his own country out of spite. Charles II realised he needed to mask his own personal beliefs to hold things together. He did try to weaken Parliament in favour of his own powers but on the whole he did fairly well in allowing England to recover from the Civil Wars. James II was a monster, a repeat of his father (Charles I). The other potential King James, i.e. Duke of Monmouth, may have been a good king. He was a through & through Protestant and so would have automatically had the support of the people, and he appears to have had a good empathy with the population. However, he never got the chance as he was ultimately executed by his uncle, James II. After the English nobles realised they needed to tie down the monarch constitutionally the Dutchman, William, was brought in. His only real wish was to play the soldier. The real Stuart, his wife Mary, though full joint monarch did so little that she is hidden in Williams shadow. Anne was a total nonentity who failed to supply any successors. Her only legacy is a synonym for prudishness. Later Stuarts only brought instability. 'Bonnie Prince Charlie's only claim to being a Scot was through his great-grandfather, yet he used this to con Scotland into shedding its blood for his own ends. So, on the whole the Stuarts were a dynastic disaster.
