    Great thread - good research - thanks. The British Govt have an interesting track record in drug dealing. e.g. 19th Century Opium Wars. Opium Wars Political Cartoon by Prince Arthur, on Flickr From Wikipedia: 'The Opium Wars were two wars in the mid-19th century involving Great Qing and the British Government and concerned their imposition of trade of opium upon China, thus compromising China's territorial sovereignty and economic power for almost a century. The clashes included the First Opium War (1839–1842), with the British naval forces, and in the Second Opium War (1856–1860), also known as the Arrow or Anglo-French Wars to the Chinese, Britain was aided by French forces. The wars and subsequently imposed treaties weakened the Qing dynasty and Chinese governments, and forced China to increase its imports from colonial and imperial powers.

The Knights of the Garter controlled both sides of the warring factions.... i.e. they couldn't lose KG - Knight of the Garter The Irish Battle of the Boyne 1690
