"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."

All from The Sunday Times: Lord Taylor of Warwick claimed £70k for staying at his mother's home until 2007 - but she died, and the house was sold, in 2001. Sack him.
Harriet Harman secretly tried to change Party rules to favour women. Sack her.
2000 more British troops for Afghanistan but will they get the funding and equipment they need?
More on unreceipted petty cash pocketed by MPs.
Illegal immigrant comes in on a UK Border Agency coach. Oh, the irony!
Inflation-busting payrises of Trade Union leaders. Are they worth it?
And finally: A tongue-in-cheek article on the English 'invention' of haggis.
