"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."

Why The Fuss?

Much is being made in the msm of last week's £40m Graff 'diamond heist'.

The UK contributes £152.8m net per day to the EU
UK government borrowing increased by £15bn in July 09 taking it to 56.6% GDP
HM Treasury overspent by £24bn in 08-09
UK Public Sector deficit ran at £9.9bn for the month of June 09
The UK government spends £500m pa on 30,000 employees

£40m? Pah! Just chicken-feed.

The Daily Mash adopts a humorous tone
