New feature: Dead King Watch
"Hail to the King"
I have decided to introduce another new feature for Histomat - 'Dead King Watch'.
I know what you are thinking. 'This guy is supposed to be a Marxist, and now he is talking about either a) Kings or b) Elvis. The last few cut and paste's he passed off as 'posts' were underwhelming, and the last time he tried to introduce a 'new feature' ('Quote me happy') it was distinctly unimpressive. When is he going to post something semi-original again? Or more to the point, when is he going to post something vaguely to do with er, historical materialism?'
But, the way I see it, if I want to talk about Dead Kings of England on this blog instead of discussing EP Thompson's brilliant critique of Althusser in The Poverty of Theory, then I can do that, right? Right. Okay.
What this new feature will try to do is to simply record the dates that Kings of England died, on the anniversary of the date that they died, so people can have the opportunity to comment on what they thought about this or that dead ruler of England. I apologise for the Anglo-centric bias in advance. I also apologise for posting when pissed.
