"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."

HMS Cardiff
There's trouble a't'drill as lots and lots of lovely oil has been found off the Falkland Islands - "British pirates pushing Argentina to the limits".  "Argentina furious".  Source

Our Armed Forces: two out of three say kit is inadequate and four out of five say morale is low
One in five school-leavers is illiterate & unemployable thanks to a Labour education
Markets plummet across Europe & Dow Jones down 280 points
Election UPDATE @ 4.13pm: Con: 305; Labour: 258; LibDems: 57; Others: 28. Seats still to declare: 2
