Simply frightful

More Downton domination.  That’s all. 

Thank goodness for that.

He’s lucky.  They had something back then that the modern world has lost, I think.

Poor thing.  She was very upset when her husband disappeared, you know.  Made all the domestic staff except Havers leave the house for a week.
I won’t say anything to her directly, but I do think she’s not making a very good job of managing the staff.  First she hires a stable-boy who seems to know nothing about horses, then she hires a governess when there’s no children to take care of and I’ve just heard that both scullery maids have been given notice!  So who’s going to scrub the floors?

Nothing worse than cold tea, is there?

  1. Yes Mr Wells may argue for a fairer and better society but that's not going to be the case for the unfortunates in these old established houses. Just as Female Supremacy will be good for males as well as Females so Socialism might be good for the rich as well as the poor.

  2. Of course, this was back in the days when the feminist movement was really just beginning. Equality between the sexes was just a distant dream of a few idealist socialists. The ladies above, of course, would have no truck with that sort of nonsense. Equality, indeed!

  3. From each according to his abilities, to each acording to what he so richly deserves, that's what I say.

    Of course, most males don't even know their own ablities, until a woman has taken the trouble to provide the proper motivation.

  4. Yes. She was originally planning to use the cane on him to force him to give her sexual satisfaction. But in the event, she discovered that dishing out a really good thrashing did the job on its own. So that was all right.

    Best wishes
