Not too far from the stench of the horses is DOWNING STREET. Uh, 10 Downing Street is the home of the Prime Minister. No, Maragret Thatcher did not invite me in to tea.
The Throne of England is in the Abby. It is really just a big wooden chair that has been used since the coronation of King Edward I in 1308. Under the chair is a big stone, just an ordinary stone. It is the Stone of Scone, the stone upon which Scottish Kings were coronated. Old Edward said he was the King of Scotland, although the Scots fought him about that up to and including today, and he carried off their precious stone to put it under the English Throne. It was there when I visited, it has since been returned to Scotland.
