"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."

The End



Music traces a history, just like books. There's no doubt that we will win in the end because man's nature can't countenance anything other than self-determination. People fight and people change the status quo. We're individuals, not a society or a State. We will be heard.

I'll be back to the facts and figures tomorrow but, in the meantime, I'm just glorying in the music.

  2. Hi WW, true, but perhaps the Laurel & Hardy theme tune would be more appropriate to today's politics?
