"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 Reflection



With special thanks to Max Farquhar who spotted an idle wish on one of my posts and turned it into the video you see above.  It's far better than I could possibly have imagined.  Thank you, Max.

  1. Eric Coates was so quintessentially English in his music, of which this lovely little waltz is a perfect example. I think he thoroughly deserves the accolade of being called a 'basically sound chap'.

    That probably gives you some idea of how long I've been around!

    Thank you, C.E.

  4. Well at least you have your memories of what it used to be like. Think of the poor youngsters who have no memories of life in England before mass immigration, multiculturalism, and the EU?

  6. I can't remember the last time I had this many comments on a SunRef! I'm glad you all liked it - Coates was a prolific composer, if he were alive today he'd be called 'populist' in a sneering, lefty sort of way.

    McG! You just had to introduce a note of realism, didn't you? ;-)

    It certainly makes a change from your usual output, Max and you can rest assured YouTube will never take it down :-)

  7. LoL ;-)
    Maybe I should stop trying to be so seditious and concentrate on more stuff like this. It's probably better for the BP too ;-)
