You can be spoiled in life, the little things, the small moments of brilliance can seem so monumental that they, in most people’s eyes, cannot be seen to be bettered, not even equalled and it is a shame because the monumental should be inspiring; it should be a light that shines, not to intimidate, but to at least emulate, to carry on the noble tradition of something worthwhile.

It is possibly the modern etiquette attached to an English Civil War, if we cannot get rid of a Government taking the country apart, lets kick down the social ladder.
