    Earl Grey was Lord of the Admiralty in 1806 and became foreign minister after the death of Fox.

    In 1832 he became prime minister, and was responsible for the passage of the first reform act and the abolition of slavery in all the british territories.

    No, I just want people to put their threads where they belong. But no biggie, that's why we mods get paid so well, to do the job for y'all!


    Now, you're making me thirsty for some iced tea. Lipton is awaiting!

    England has a unique power problem due to the way they do TV commercials, the fact they like tea, and that the run 220 volts for ordinary house current.

    At the end of every popular TV show, millions of Britons turn on their electric tea kettles at once, which causes incredible power load shifts. They have a special electric power station in Wales which can be turned on in seconds and provide enough power to the whole country for five minutes to meet the load, and then be turned off.
