"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."

Have I Missed Much?

What an entertaining weekend it's been.  Viewed from the Lemsip & Honey 'comfort' of my sofa it looks as though Brown's bullying has finally been exposed to a wider audience.  Mandelson and Blair must have been giggling like schoolgirls behind the bikeshed when they came up with' The Great Clunking Fist' euphemism for Brown.

Perhaps I'm still feverish but I'm sure Sky's breaking news is that Jacqui Smith, former Home Secretary, sent one of the emails.  As you were, it seems Jacqui emailed Christine Pratt to criticise her for breaking confidences. One of the patrons of the anti-bullying campaign has also just resigned as a result of Pratt's breach of confidence. Given half a chance the media will make Pratt the story rather than Brown.

Meanwhile, an artist has finally caught up with Ollie and Grumpy Old Twat by creating a stir with his latest work which morphs Hitler into Brown

Here are just a few links covering the story this morning:
