"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. Regarding the internet - I've got to say that I like the idea of enforcing copyrights so the creatives can make a living I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, but property is a precious thing.

    On the BNP thing, I loved the peaceful protester's warning of his upcoming peaceful protesting:

    "I'm planning to protest peacefully, but I've seen the BNP be violent and as far as I'm concerned self-defence is no offence.""

  2. Hi NNW, enforcing copyright is fair enough but it's the way the govt intends to go about it - it can only mean one thing: tighter control of the internet on spurious grounds. It's the way they work.

    As for the BNP articles, I think both leave something to be desired when it comes to being objective and impartisan. I object to the 1500 UAF protesters who are govt-sponsored and spout rhetoric just as vile as the NF used to do.

  3. on the Burkini thing:

    Ian Cawsey, the Labour MP for North Lincolnshire:

    "I don't think that in a local authority pool I should have to wear a particular type of clothes for the benefit of someone else. That's not integration or cohesion."

    Unfortunately, it is integration. It is the non-Muslim people of this country being forceably integrated into Islamic customs.
