"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."

Yesterday's News

There's trouble a' t EU mill but I'm sure they'll sort it out to their own satisfaction - a quick rule change here, a quick fumble under the covers there and, hey presto, we're all co-habitating in a fabulous, brand-new rainbow world.  Unity through diversity is the motto of the day.

Bear in mind that the msm only reports what it can report.  Bear in mind restrictions on photography and journalism.  I can't be bothered to go into it all again.  I can see why so many bloggers need a break from it all - the lies and contradictions are overwhelming.
The UK's 1972 European Communities Act states that any economic "stability and convergence" programmes cannot be submitted to the EU until they have been considered by Parliament. The article also notes that the UK Government is arguing that any agreement to introduce the plan would have to be based on unanimity, but EU officials are suggesting that the proposal could be introduced through qualified majority voting instead, under which the UK would have no veto.
There shall come a time when someone, elected to represent the wishes of the British people, stands up and says: 'We represent the will of the British people', and then act accordingly.  A coalition govt doesn't cut it.

In the meantime, here's one of my favourite childhood melodies played by Rachmaninoff:

    Thanks, CE, for the lovely piano music - Rachmaninoff always takes me back to the days of my childhood, too.

    Perhaps someone, someone with a pair, ought to 'suggest' that the EU 'go forth and multiply'.

  2. That'll be the day, Anon, when this country stands up for its own national interest against the EU. I'm afraid I've given up hoping, especially since Cameron & co have watered down their commitment to 'take powers back' and put the UK Sovereignty Bill on the back burner.

    I used to play a much simplified version of the Harmonious Blacksmith when I was knee-high to a piano stool - it's always been comfort food to me :-)
