"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."

Morons Unite At The Indie

Read the comments and weep
A taster: "The phrase you use "Europe will always be a foreign land" assumes there is a strong sense of Britain. But surely "Britain" is disappearing fast? Don't you think?

Didn't a senior Welsh politician say that being described as "British" was racist? It's not a description I would use too much in some parts of the UK. Might not Scotland and N Ireland break away from the UK? Do post 1945 immigrants feel "Europe will always be a foreign land"? Post Lisbon Treaty what will be left of Britain? The UK may soon be 12 regions of a 270 region EU - even if not what a nation state means will surely be greatly redefined. GB RIP"

Well, it made me cry.
