    "actualy Clickfool, wessex is very much alive! Just as Israel and Judaia was renamed Palestine for abuse purpose, Wessex was renamed Gloucester and the surrounding counties (Berkshier etc) for money purposes painted in a gesture called the Magna Carta." Your knowledge of British history is a little shaky, Itsik. Wessex was one of a number of separate kingdoms in the British Isles, covering parts of Hampshire and Berkshire but mostly straddling the West Country - Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset and Devon. It wasn't renamed, as you suggest - it simply disappeared with the rise of the English state in the 9th Century. To call Prince Edward the Earl of Wessex simply shows how totally ridiculous the whole business of the aristocracy is. We are meant to show respect to folk who were lucky in their choice of parents. Oliver Cromwell did his best to get rid of this nonsense but all the grovellers wanted a fresh king's ass to kiss as soon as he was dead.
