An Utterly Impartial History of Britain
(2000 Years of Upper Class Twits In Charge)
May I apologize in advance for any errors that have slipped through the checking. My only defence is that these mistakes are fairly minor compared to the decision of the Scottish army to invade Britain during the Black Death.
William the Conqueror introduced the feudal system, where serfs bound to a lord, and couldn't leave. Although if you did escape and managed to evade capture for a year and a day, you were free from bondage. Every exploitative system has the remote possibility of escape that prevents the oppressed from falling into total despair. Ours is called the National Lottery.
