"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

  1. A general election would upset his plans, if not end them. But can that ever be realistically achieved with the largest collection of unelected supreme rulers we've ever known holding power over us?

    Heil Brown, heil Mandy.

    If only people would switch off their TVs and get the pitchforks and torches ready. The police might have machine guns, but maybe some of them would join the march as well.

  2. I'm sorry, CE: I'm sually in good accord with what you have to say but the picture you post here is absolutely disgraceful. If I were a Satanist, I would sue.

  3. Hi T, horrible pic isn't it but it captures him to a t - I mean, just look at those eyes!

    Yes, VotR - the current cabinet is the most undemocratic and unaccountable there's ever been. For a party that thought the HoL was an anachronism of privilege and cronyism they're doing a pretty good job of perpetuating it themselves. And I daresay Brown won't turn up his nose at a peerage when he's no longer PM. Hypocrites.
