"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. Keith Floyd RIP - Even I used to watch his programmes. Which is astounding really as I generally loathe TV and cookery shows in particular.

  4. Agreed WL - a true Englishman with a full range of eccentricities, from an age when that was not an insult.
