    It's very probably true though. I am a complete Shakespeare fan but it doesn't hurt to tell it like it was.

    For example Richard III was given a thorough hatchet job in the play of the same name, because it would have suited the Tudors to depict him as a thorough-going bastard . However,there is an enthusiatic society hell-bent on clearing his name .

    It's probably impossible to get to the bottom of the controversies surrounding Richard because so much is coloured by propaganda, pro and con: opinion is sharply divided to this day.

      You seem to be rather 'discontent' with this news

      ‘Tis said his form is tiny, yet
      All human ills he can subdue,
      Or with a bauble or medal
      Can win mans heart for you;
      And many a blessing know to stew
      To make a megloamaniac bright;
      Give honour to the dainty Corse,
      The Pixie is a little shite.
