"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."

Some Things Never Change

Some things are eternal verities:

I've posted this before and make no apologies (it  was either this or Cohen's Partisan).  We need to ask more questions and challenge more often than once every 4/5yrs at the ballot box.

I'm tired of reading comments in the online press saying, "We're doomed."   No, we're not.


  1. My dad, R.I.P., used to quote all or part of this to me after some particularly disappointing episode in life, like Cheslsea losing or an Airfix sticker not sticking.

  2. :-) It's a shame we've had to move on from childhood pleasures. It would be nice if all we had to be concerned about today were unsticky stickers or fiddling about with a crochet hook trying to put the doll's head back on again.
