"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."

Sunday Round-Up

No doubt there's much going on at the moment but all the events can be broken down into three categories: symptoms; causes; distractions. They all make for depressing reading so I thought I'd give it a miss this week. I've been quite down lately anyway - as you can probably tell from the 'Christmas' videos I've been posting in a childish attempt to lighten things up.

Here's a late mini round-up instead:

IMF HQ refurbishment
Gun laws tightened - again
US 'empowering' British Muslims
Luton Islamic Centre's extremist links
iPhone/Android apps are watching you
Sliding into internet censorship
EU 'cybercrime' agency
Hottest year on record
Booker takes Huhne to task
Ashton: Sell arms to China
Parliament may open to diners
Govt's 'Top Secret' wine list
Chaos or control?
An irrelevance
Sudan President banks $9m in London

Two Christmas stories: Christmas cards and the BBC's Nativity Play.

Spain 1 and 2.
