Empire Jack

While checking out Jeremy Thorpe's biography for my earlier post , I found out that his grandfather was this fine chap who bore the superb nickname of "Empire Jack".

Place him next to his grandson and you have an allegory of exactly what has happened to this country .

(Right enough , Thorpe would be a shining beacon of patriotism , morality and restraint when compared to our modern political masters).
