Here We Go Again, Back To The Dark Ages.

In my very first post I observed that “insanity seems to be contagious these days”, this was in regards to a shopping centre in Greater Manchester deciding to install 'squat toilets', aka Nile pans, Turkish toilets, Bali bogs, fucking, stinking, great holes in the ground, after the management enrolled themselves on some cultural awareness course.
Well I should be a fucking doctor because my observation was spot on.

Now we have Royal Mail jumping on the crazy train and replacing two perfectly working 1596 model British toilets, with two medieval squats in one of the their largest processing plants.
Apparently the world's first pedestal toilet, with flush, was invented by Englishman and writer, whose first name will be forever associated with all things toilet, John Harington, way back in 1596. Then improved upon by another Englishman, whose last name will be forever associated with all things toilet and crap, Thomas Crapper.
John Harington also observed that "treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason." Smart chap our John.

If it's not insanity to undo the life's work of these two national heroes and replace it with medieval technology, then I really don't know what is.

Bill, Billy, Ted and Σωκράτης prepare to leave medieval England.
Bill notes in his diary,
"Medieval English babes, good. Medieval English shitters, bad".
