Socialist Worker's toff of the week

Issue No. 2306

This week's Toff of the Week is Henry Armitage

  • Lord of the manor Henry Armitage is trying to turn the clock back to 1773 in his Cumbrian village of Preston Patrick

  • Armitage and his mother Jennifer want to invoke their ancient rights to “hunting, hawking, fishing and fowling” anywhere in the village
  • Startled villagers received letters advising them of the request—and were given just three weeks to object
