Am writing a Downton Abbey sequel focused on Lady Miranda Felchcroft. She's ever so nice to rich people because that is the correct thing to do, but treats her loyal servants like dirt, but they respect her because she is a lady and all. Will send instructions for my large royalty payments anon.

You need to get it sent in pretty quick.
It's about to kick off here in the UK
The plebs have had enough.
I would pay good money to see Lady Miranda felch a croft
I confess, I had no idea what 'felch' meant, so I looked it up. I wish I hadn't, but probably not as much as this lady.
A fascinating example of nested quotations, showing alternating use of double and single quotation marks in order to minimise confusion:
“ OK, since we didn’t get in any trouble with Snatch and Jiz, and a couple of these other comics, I was partying one night with Crumb, Wilson and these other guys. And Wilson mentioned to me, he says, "I was talking to Ken Weaver and he had this real interesting word." I said what, "What is it?" "A word called 'felch.'"[ ... "]
(See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felching. Note: final, closing quotation mark is, in fact, missing in the Wikikpedia reference.)
Is a love of quoting obscure information from Wikipedia a sign of Wikipedophilia?
"... but probably not as much as this lady."
Reading that would lead one to believe that felching involved (among other activities) '... watching swans and watching cats watching movies" - a somewhat passive activity I would have thought. It would be interesting to hear what Kevin had to say about such voyerism.
Felchcroft is an unfortunate but ancient English name. She can hold her head high.
Is anyone brave enough to Google the well-known phrase
John Prescott and Justin Bieber felch

Is that how people do it?
