The new Lord exercises his rights

Telegraph | News | Liverpool star stops hunt using his land

Djibril Cissé, the Liverpool footballer who recently bought a £2 million manor house in Cheshire, has banned hunting on his new estate.
The French striker, who inherited the title "Lord of the Manor of Frodsham" when he purchased the nine acres...

Absolutely up to him who he allows on his land, and I'm sure he is well in with the rest of the Cheshire Aristocracy, but, m'Lord, nine acres ain't exactly an "estate" - it is a very nice garden with a home paddock and hopefully a bit of woodland. (For those of you without your own estate, nine acres (funny how the BBC doesn't use the less impressive sounding metric 3.5 hectares!) is about 200 yards by 200 yards square.)

actually, by my numbers it is something like 626'1" sq !

If any hunt would like to come hunting on my estate (about 30 square yards) please feel free. I'll even bash a post in the ground to tie your horses to. :-)

Englishman.
Your link is to a Telegraph story, so unless the BBC also ran it you might be being unfair to them. Mind you they're unfair to anyone they don't like so who cares.

Overall it is simply a typical non-story. The real story as you rightly point out is: "French Footballer Thinks Nine Acres is an Estate"

I share an estate with some other guys that is 200 yards by about 70-yards where we hunt paper-doodles...

I don’t suppose you caught last nights BBC local news Tim, it reported on the successful reintroduction of The Giant Bustard to Salisbury plain. Despite the fact that only six unaccounted birds remain in the wild while the other 18 are being nursed back to health mainly due of attacks by foxes is by the by. Some success! The none story should have been “hunt ban jeopardises Bustard return” but that’s not the BBC way is it.

Well I s,pose he can always spear one! Muhaha

I note that the marxist league against anything enjoyable LOONY LEFT wankers are MORE INTERESTED in animals then they are ENGLAND'S HISTORY!
THOSE SCUM SHOULD BE BURNT!!!

Another point I have to make is I find it hilarious how foreigners complain about the British empire and yet cant wait to become a lord! If only they knew what we thought of that scenario! Cisse, it doesnt matter how much you buy or how much you think you belong! YOU DO NOT! You aint no lord!

Hey! Some Yanks don't complain about the British Empire. Damn, I think that India, Africa and China would have been better off still under colonial rule. Look at the mess they're in now.

I tell yer what there some complete right wing fucking arseholes on here: "perhaps he could spear it, wake up yer sad fucker" "Another point I have to make is I find it hilarious how foreigners complain about the British empire and yet cant wait to become a lord! If only they knew what we thought of that scenario! Cisse, it doesnt matter how much you buy or how much you think you belong! YOU DO NOT! You aint no lord!"

Are you jealous that a black french man who has excelled at his art can come over here and buy your property???

Get orfff moi lahhnd you fucking forrinaah

If your so pissed off about these foreigners buying great british soil, get up off yer arses and earn enough wedge to buy it back... or would you rather go back a couple of hundred years and just string the lad up??

get yer pillow cases off and wake up

Djibril Cisse did not really buy his title. The title is given to anybody who owns that particular manor house. Like it or lump it he IS Lord of the Manor of Frodsham. Titles mean little to me, as perhaps they do to Djibril, but that doesn't mean we should all deny their existence.

There are some really sorry excuses for human beings on this board. Is it jealousy / racism / ignorance / something else? Some of the people on here are so repugnant, it's really quite petrifying to think people like this exist at all.

Have I just stumbled back into the 18th Century? No, it seems we still haven't quite managed to get rid of a generation of backward thinking, bigots. Do you really think Djibril Cisse would want to belong to your dwindling gang of aristocrats? Maybe banning your fox hunting friends from his land is an indicator that he couldn't care less about you or maybe the fact that he's a black frenchman would have more to do with it. And no, he didn't buy his title purposely, most people in the modern world aren't concerned with labels gained from years of war-mongering, exploitation and barbaric murder. Thank God he isn't German, then you'd be forced to live out some of your more recent xenophobic prejudices. It will be a great day when we can bury the last of your archaic species. Now run along back to Daddy and stop criticising people who actually work for their money.

Ps. The British Empire is dead.
