"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. And that's the only time you'll see about 300 of those lords...

    So anyway - load of bollocks created by Edward VII that we should get rid of - or - a lovely tradition?

  2. A meaningless tradition Tarquin, and that's all. I've been a monarchist all my life - no longer since all EU Treaties since Laeken have rec'vd Royal Assent. I think it's too late for the republicans as well - you're never going to be independent.
