Holy Grail not found in pub in Herefordshire

SHARE
I have loved things Arthurian since earliest boyhood. (Robin Hood, on the other hand always left me completely cold, which perhaps suggests I was a born conservative.)  I devoured Malory when I was eleven. This news item is not Idylls of the King but hey.


One day King Arthur will awake from the cave in which he sleeps and return, when Britain is at her moment of greatest peril. Could be fairly soon, the way things are going.

    1. I wonder what he would think of equality legislation, climate change and the EU. Better he sleeps on.

    2. He would think nothing of them because those issues have no connection to the times when he (allegedly) lived.

  2. I suppose I meant that he would find it all too complicated. I remember AJP Taylor wrote that, far from be the best ruler England ever had, Henry V was probably not much better than Ramsay MacDonald.
