: Does anyone know what this means?

: "bring in the stick of the 4th estate"

: It was used in the sentence, If I ever have to bring in the stick of the 4th estate I'll enlist some of your energy.

: Thank you.

Bruce is of course right. The first three 'estates' are, in the UK, the Lords Spiritual, the Lords Temporal and the Commons.
