"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."

He used it against the Conservatives (naturally) when he spoke of their "pledge" to repeal the Human Rights Act.  What have I missed?  When did they pledge to repeal it and where is it written?
