We still fall for it because the press and other media tell us we should.Monty Python and the holy grail spoke the truth in the 70's but we weren't listening.And we still aren't,and probably never will.

The French had it about right in 1789 and so did the Russians in 1917 although what replaced the aristocracy was flawed as well.

And ever it was thus. We 'commoners' have been ruled, rogered and ripped off for millennia. We're still basically ruled by a mafia on this planet - a collective of 'royals', 'aristocrats', the super-wealthy families like the Rothschilds and their ilk, and the industrial/banking cabal, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Nestle etc. etc.

The French revolution was organised by the Masons - basically as a means of wresting power from 'l'ancien regime' of Monarchy and church and to institute an enlightened 'new world order', as was the American revolution - so power went from one ruling bunch to another. The Masonic order supposedly had higher principles - liberté, égalité, fraternité were their watchwords - but here we are, a few hundred years later, and has the world changed for the better, or power been transferred to the people? The Russian revolution was backed by American banks and industrialists among others (as was Hitler of course). For the ruling elite, any conflict is a win-win scenario, since they profit in so many ways, and always the bottom line is: divide and rule.

The EU is a banker-run, undemocratic institution with many (current or past) leading figures being Goldman Sachs alumni alone (Mario Draghi head of the ECB, Mario Monti former Italian PM, Papandreou former Greek PM to give but 3 examples).

The eye-watering sums that the EU pay to British aristocrats under the CAP, simply for owning large tracts of land - as specified in the article - are obscene. And all the while, the 'aristocrats', the elite, the massive corporations like Amazon, Vodafone etc. etc, avoid paying tax, or pay a pittance, and yet benefit from the infrastructure built and paid for by the common people. It goes on and on.

The questions are, a) do we care (I see little sign that the majority give a damn) and b) if we do, what are we going to do about it?

There have been many TV programmes about the aristocracy in which they are presented as endearingly eccentric and bumbly as they worry about the upkeep on their huge houses. The public seem to take it all in as they gawp at their TV screens in thrall.

Reading that, I am amazed that after two world wars and several labour governments that more hasn't been done to curb this self protecting greed.

Surely it is not beyond our politicians and their advisors to devise a way of tackling this abuse and benefitting the country.

The one thing I found slightly amusing in it though, was that the European Union has been contributing to it as well. Maybe that's one grant that we can avoid replacing when we leave.

This article can't be representative of all 'country houses' though. I visited one near Reading on a deal last year and 'his lordship' or whatever came down to chat to the visitors and his shirt collars were fraying! Lol.

Don't forget to buy the Guardian this weekend, where, under the in depth story covering best puncture repair kits for your bicycle, they bring you inside the international Jewish conspiracy.

Some aristos have fallen on impecunious times but they of course are no longer part of the problem.

The most mind-boggling thing is that so many common people continue to vote for the party that protects and serves the elites.

Poll: Come on then, let's have it.

Our best bet is probably for kind aliens to turn up and wipe most of us out. Starting with solicitors.
