"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."

  2. Hi OR - yes, I'm wondering what the Met hope to gain from releasing this info and then going on to say we haven't got a chance of combating it. Talk about encouraging the enemy!
