Charles Courtenay has been elected to the British parliament. Mr Courtenay is known as the Earl of Devon under Britain’s official class system.
Just 12 people voted for him. All of them are designated as “lords” under Britain’s official class hierarchy. All of them are unelected legislators. All of them come from the “cross bencher” (i.e. not politically affiliated) group of 31 hereditary legislators.
Only certain members of the British “aristocracy” were allowed to stand in this election to parliament.
There have been 32 such elections since 2012.
The rights of the people had nowhere to stand.
