Commons vs. Lords

On this day in 1649 the House of Commons of England passed an act abolishing the House of Lords describing it as "useless and dangerous to the people of England".  Before anyone gets any ideas, the House of Lords was restored in 1660 and continues to this day, albeit in a much diminished capacity.

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure
if he was from the House of Lords.
”A Day in the Life” by The Beatles

As a side note, 50 years ago today, Bob Dylan released his first album and the rest is, well,
music history.

"You don't need a weatherman to tell which way the wind blows."
