It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

1. Sir Richard Pole d 11.1504
Sir Richard Pole may have been chosen by King Henry VII as husband for his wife's cousin Margaret on the basis that he was 'safe' since his mother was a half-sister of Henry's own mother, Margaret Beaufort.
22.09.1494 Margaret Plantagenet, Countess of Salisbury b c1469, d 27.05.1541, dau of George Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence
Had Richard III defeated Henry Tudor at Bosworth and Edward IV been declared illegitimate, and assuming that Richard III then had no surviving issue himself, it is probable that the claim to England's throne would have passed through Margaret Plantagenet. Assuming for a moment that Margaret would have married Sir Richard had Henry Tudor not won Bosworth, surely very unlikely, such a claim would then have passed into the Hastings family and then, alongside the barony of Hastings, into the Rawdon family which later acquired the earldom of Loudoun. The succession to that hypothetical and irrelevant albeit rather interesting claim has since passed, sometimes through female lines, alongside the earldom of Loudoun.
