"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."

Just Because

All hail Spotty Dog:

We've travelled so far but as a nation we've little to show for it in terms of democracy - in fact we've gone backwards.  What shall we have for dinner today? Nothing for us but sawdust and hay.

Don't believe me?  Criminal damage to hamburger

  1. "A South Wales Police spokesman confirmed that a 31-year-old man was arrested on Saturday evening and has since been charged with causing criminal damage to food valued at £5."

    My, purely random, guess is that the guy is not Muslim, not disabled, not gay, not an MP, and not any other colour than white.

    No, that is not a guess: it's a bet. Two hamburgers if I'm wrong.

  3. GV this stuff and AmbP's posting about Shipman link up too neatly for comfort.

    The NHS is applying Nazi health care methods and noone blinks, its got academic left cover.

    A guy burps on a pizza and gets lifted. As Edgar says too many easy collars.

    And to expect us to think that Shipman was trailblazing the Nazi health care angle alone simply beggars belief. There was a whole group at work and he took the fall, a whole group just like today in the NHS.

  4. The story about Mr Jones the chap wrongly diagnosed and 'encouraged' to die is awful - all the more reason for people to keep questioning supposed-experts.
