On this day

1215; The country was in a state of Civil War and English barons, in revolt against King John, took possession of London.
Johny boy was norman french - the English barons were mostly greedy git northerners in debt to John.
The French (non norman landowners); it is alledged; were helping the English barons.
In those days of old, a pleb was lucky to get a peek at a pig in a poke; the rich in debt barons had been gifted land by the King.
Throw into the mix the control of normandy and the church...

While most plebs were getting on with their relatively wretched lives - the rich 'royals' were in an intriguing international (European)internecine struggle for contol of the power and wealth.
Don't mention the shifting power of the church and 'monasterial' manipulators.

Just like the establishment going for the easy hit; do plebs go along with the flow!
The Greek plebs did; and look where it has got them - give us your Drachma.
The Greek national assetts were built up with the Drachma - will they be taken away in some contrived control con by the Euro.
It is up to the plebs.
