Politicians are forever telling us, the plebs, that if we don’t go out and vote, we have no place complaining about the result. I did vote in the last election, as I do in every election. The MP I voted for was one of 184 who abstained rather than vote…

Queen Victoria, sometime in the 1880s. Queen Victoria is thought by many to have been quite miserable. If you asked people who said “We are not amused”, most would automatically think of her. This popular image is mistaken, however. There is no record of…
