Like it or lump it, at that time for some there was excessive affluence generated for these islands and some of its inhabitants, but for the majority there was still penury and servitude. Many slaves were treat better than the British Workers and that is something everyone avoids saying. Even in the last century, mine workers went below so that their children did not have to. That too is not being taught as it effects the sensibilities of the New Arrivals and the Left wing idiots in the Class rooms.
If Ukip are to make a difference they should stop being perceived as a One Man Band (see latest interview with Nigel Farage), and confront head-on the purveyors of all the lies that are destroying these once Great Islands.
