"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."

Of Loins and Pitchforks

If you're still wrapped up in tinsel (and who isn't at this time of year?) you might have missed this latest propaganda. It's the EU telling us how good they are. Who could possibly doubt their good intent when they spend so many millions of our taxes each year telling us so? Only right-wing extremists would doubt their good intentions.

December 2010:

I wonder how many interpreters the EU needs:

Ils ne passeront pas
On ne passe pas
¡No pasarán!
Sie werden nicht durchkommen!
Pe aici nu se trece!
No passaran!
No Surrender.

PS: A Trivial Pursuit question: Which English author has been banned by the EU from future euro banknotes because he is deemed anti-semitic?


  1. Just lurking.

    Happy New Year

  2. Is that 'lurking' as in Insp.Clouseau lurking or 'looking' in a very British sort of way? Welcome back Bugger - I haven't yet tried out your wine recommendations but intend to do so as soon as funds permit :-)

  3. The answer: William Shakespeare, because of the character Shylock in the Merchant of Venice.

  4. Well, it surprised me. I wonder if you can believe everythig you read in TP :-)
