Latest Bristol Mayor Poll

April 29, 2012

Only a few days to go the excitement is unforgettable.

I know you can’t choose your parents or ancestors and if you go back far enough we’re all related to Ghengis Khan and Attilla the Hun but here’s a coincidence to munch over.
Cameron is a relative of the royals,. a 5th cousin or whatever of the queen, a direct descendent of william IV, not the fat bloke on the horse statue in Queen Sq that was william III. You lost yet? The William IV geezer had a line of relatives from his mistress which cameron is one and which Samuel Pepys would have correctly called bastards in those days. So that’s Cameron sorted.
Boris can claim Prince Paul of Württemberg amongst his ancestors. Which apparently makes him a descendent of George II and hence a descendent of all the British royal families.
Weird innit?? The three top political jobs in the uk all from the same family. Head of State, Prime Minister and Mayor of London.

Anyhow back to the latest poll.

    “Weird innit”. Not a surprise that the ruling classes have kept power to themselves, but a surprise that they have managed it for so long. Still, nepotism rules, you only have to look at the media and how often the same names keep occurring.

    The bbc does a good job as an official propaganda machine.
