The lie I spoke of is the quality of British justice, an absolute whopper. A couple of hundred years back, grave robbing was not a crime, however, stealing a loaf of bread could have you deported, stealing a rabbit from a nobleman's estate could send you to the gallows.BR wrote:I suspect you would if you were willing to commit resources proportionate to Saville.

The Arseo'crockery in action, just as they do today, they protected their property to an extraordinary extent and by the late 1700s there were well over 200 potential crimes punishable by the death penalty, many for crimes that we consider petty, hardly worth a judge's time today.
These were known as The Bloody Code, retrospectively. Grand larceny was punished by death and was defined as the theft of goods worth more than one shilling.
The average Lionel today, who as a "race" are brought up to respect those of wealth and power, should butcher the entire arseocrockery had they but a titter of wit, simply to even up the score.
British Justice, eh? Lionels eh?
