"The Guardian joined protesters on Sunday as they walked for a few hours in the sunshine and had a quiet, litter-free picnic in a field next to a conifer plantation."

It is heartening to see there are still those who do not doff their caps to their 'betters', and who recognise that protest is vital to retain the freedoms that were previously fought for, and won.

Just googled the Duke of Somerset- seats in the House of Lords - another free-loading aristocrat.

Abolish the House of Lords, abolish the monarchy, abolish their titles and make the country much more democratic.

Seats outside too but in that area I always preferred the Hoop and Grapes.

"The duke owns 1,100 hectares (2,800 acres) of land in some of the most beautiful areas of Devon, but the vast majority of it is inaccessible to the public. This is despite the fact he has received funds for the woodland the protesters picnicked in under the English woodland grant scheme, which comes from taxpayer money."

So wtf does matey want with almost 3,000 acres?

You'd assume anything that receives/claims public funds would be accessible to the public, but it seems much of it is used for pheasant breeding/shooting for the rich bods as a bit of fun.

As for protesting, they were eating what?

Surely the picnic contained some layered sponge cake and not Victoria bloody Sponge for goodness' sake.

We'll be naming potatoes after the monarchy next thing you know.

That is something that is long overdue, renaming food (christ, that'll set off the wokey cokeys good and proper )

No more Beef Wellington, sandwich or Victoria sponge. Beef Atkins, an Ips wich and a Paddington cake.

Yes, turf out the silly ar ses from the upper chamber along with any religos.

The Royals are set to be scaled back after Liz hands in her dinner plate.

And I suspect there'll be a few more Commonwealth countries telling the royals to far cough, as with Edward and Juan Carlos's boy, when they recently tipped up in the Caribbean.

However, a bit more levelling up is not what is on the mind of those who paid for brexit. Can't have the great unwashed thinking just because they pay for something they should have use of it.

Give them some of that pageantry stuff, that'll distract them for a while

Let me tell you about Battenberg then......
