At last Saturday’s conference in the Hunter Valley, Mr Richard Giles was the last speaker.
Richard referred in his speech to the death of Tiberius Graccus. This elected Roman tribune was a champion of the poor. The rich hated him. They thought the only way to get rid of him was to get him murdered.
How this was done, before Tiberius Gracchus could get elected again, you can find out when you go to the above link.
The rich acted this way in 133 BC. Isn’t it interesting to go back a bit in history?
