Thank you for the link, saved it and will be reviewing it later when I wake-up..
And the hostage thing, is it still done today? Darn how does Parliament feel about that and how do they pick the hostage and where is the hostage kept? Maybe in the dungeon with only bread and no water, just where they belong
HM takes a hostage....that is so funny and unbelievable.
Any more of those traditions for now I am learning alot here, so far it is:
1) Picking the sheriff with needles whose names are on a piece of paper
2) Taking a member of Parliament hostage when HM gives the State of Union speech in Parliament
I so love these traditions for to me it keeps the history and heritage alive as they way it should be.
