Historic documents… our nations’ past glories…

A collection of historic documents has been saved for the nation after it was bought by Southampton University for a shade less than three millions pounds…  This is a vast archive containing papers of the Victorian Prime Minister Lord Palmerston and many other important people from my country’s greatest period.  The money raised will be put to good use — repairs to the Grade I listed house at Broadlands in Hampshire.  The contrast with today is simply staggering, when you read the list and then make some comparison to those who have governed us during my lifetime… I’d cry into my beer if the doctor hadn’t told me to stop drinking and the government hadn’t made it so damned expensive!
