Thomas Paine: Jan 29 1737 – June 8, 1809

Today marks the 200th  anniversary of the death of Thomas Paine the founding father of what is now the United States of America’s break from the domination of the British monarchy.

There can be no doubt that Thomas, were he around now, would be both horrified and amazed that the people of Britain still have their weak democracy dominated by an unelected second chamber and ruled not by the vote but by a single unelected family.
