A tad more complex and deeply rooted in our history than some manage to grasp:
The problem with you liberal conspirators is that though you are always banging on about class, you really don’t understand it.
You imagine, for instance, that because Richard Drax has a quadruple-barreled name he must be a social grandee. But a proper toff would regard him as a frightful nouveau-riche oik.
The Erle-Drax clan made their pile by being Lefties. They were on Cromwell’s side in the English Civil War – and were well rewarded for it.
Later, they sided with the awful Dutchman, King Billy, so beloved of our Northern Irish loyalists against the rightful King, James Stuart.
