It seems clear to me - with this Doctor strike - that Politicians have never really been able to get a grip on the British population. It is essentially the same thing as 1000's of years ago when they used to go around burning heretics and witches. Britain doesn't seem to have escaped the Dark Ages, it just goes through phases of pretending to.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to summarise British Political History over the last few 1000 years. Obviously that's a huge timelines so just include things that you think are significant, or which reveal an interesting pattern.
What are your thoughts?
