"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."

Bill Cash: Urgent Question

Conservative Home has some good quotes and links following on from Bill Cash's Urgent Question on EU economic governance this afternoon.  Philip Davies, Con, Shipley, asked the question we'd all like answered while Mark Hoban, the Financial Secretary, was content to stay within the safe boundaries of government nu-speak:
Philip Davies:
"Whenever the Minister defends this country from a power grab and a cash grab by the European Union, he will have the enthusiastic support of Members on these Benches. Some of us are rather nervous, however, because when the Conservatives were in opposition, they opposed the European External Action Service, yet they sang its praises when introducing it in the House not long ago. They also opposed giving more money to the European Union, yet they recently rubber-stamped an increase through this House that had been agreed by the previous Government. Does the Minister agree that his Government should be judged on what they do, and not on what they say?"
