Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 30 People

    It’s Disestablishmentarianism Gone Mad!

    There’s the cost to me, the taxpayer (although apparently they make a net profit!), there are the tawdry celebrity style buffoons; their role as heads of the Establishment and the Church, the perpetuity of the line of favour and fortune perpetrated through the honours system...
