"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. I'm absolutely convinced that I remember a time when the worst thing about Sunday was the lumpy gravy on my dinner.

  2. Didn't Ainsworth warn his colleagues not to attack Sir Richard? Kevan Jones and George Foulked ignored him and now look ridiculous.

  3. Lumpy gravy? Invest in a whisk, E.
    Ollie, it rings a bell - last week I think. How many times must we say these guys are toast, finished, doomed? - but they still walk away intact. Bloody shameless the lot of them. Things that would have brought down a government 15/20yrs ago are just shrugged away, and we let them do it.
