They’re all appalling people, really; a complete bunch of Joffreys. Hopefully my country will come to its collective senses sooner rather than later.
He can't really, strictly speaking, sell any of the royal accoutrements anyway, since most of it was stolen from the far flung regions of the empire. The africans, indians and natives of the carribean would very much like THEIR precious gems, metals and linens back.

OK, can somebody explain this to me? I thought "the markets" are controlled by the kind of rich people who would love a policy like that.
