    I believe the Lancasters won most of it (my history is honestly a bit rusty). However, it's also worth noting that the Tudors, the house which ultimately assumed the crown after the war, were made up of a union of both houses by marriage (hence their insignia; a red Lancaster rose, with a white York rose within).

    Make of that what you will.

    I stand corrected. I should have remembered that, because it was so shocking after all he had been through. :

    I think Jack and I were typing at the same time.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Don't feel bad. I can never remember every single detail of movies like others seem to be able to do.

    I didn't argue that it was.

    You should've addressed the question to the OP.

    The BNP put out leaflets and posters at cinema queues in the UK for "Two Towers" and "Return of the King" after Eomer's speech about "invaders to our country" but it didn't wash with the UK public.

    Nobody saw it as a racist movie here and the same when John Rhys-Davies was suddenly poster-boy for the BNP after saying 'Are we willing to be part of a Muslim-controlled Europe?'

    Movie wasn't racist but like anything else, you can see racism if you want to.

    That's a good question. Are we?
