Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

My first encounter with the term "noblesse oblige" was in an early Agaton Sax book, and it left me confused. I was probably 12 at the time, and Norway (unlike Sweden) had not have native nobility for centuries. 
Did it ever had any?

Re: Are you ready for Brexit?

I'm with Sir Ivan Rogers (10 years for a long drawn-out exodus) and Fred Brooks.
