From stately homes to the prisons of wartime Britain; from the House of Lords to Edwardian asylums; fr. 35 stars This is an entertaining and interesting look at 4 different people from the British aristocracy during the 20th century Showing off their astounding weaknesses and terrible behaviour that seems to repeat down the family lines These people all had serious problems with drugs money and a sense of entitlement Their inheritances get blown on ridiculous items like luxury cars that they can't even drive trips away paying for all their friends and other frivolities Hardly any of these people were actually involved with the House of Lords the one who was often attended just for the free dinners This goes to show how with money you can be let off almost anything These men got themselves into a lot of trouble at times and whilst some got short prison sentences much shorter than you or I would get for the same offence most of them were able to pay their ways out or get someone else to uite well written in a light and jovial way it still has a serious side I enjoyed this
