Have times really changed? We used to boycott absentee English landlords.
Now Sinn Fein MPs boycott the Westminster Parliament, but make one London landlord very rich by voluntarily paying more in rack-rent for three flats than was paid, under duress in famine times, from the whole of Ulster.
The only unchanged thing? Over-taxed peasants still foot the bill.
