"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."

A Scumbag Lobby Group & Other Things

What a strange weekend it's been so far - sunny days but there's a fo-og on the horizon, drifting into the light. I feel like the only person left in the neighbourhood; the roads are quiet, the birds sing, the cats sleep and the garden grows with no assistance from myself, which is just as well since I'm full of cold. Fhs.

The politicians seem to have gone on holiday as well so there's a dearth of new news unless you're happy to hear about their tweeted sojourns into the deepest, darkest leas and valleys of the English countryside, or about nose ops (it won't help - his SpAds are on to a loser with that one). Ashton is still dithering about Libya unless she's sent the RAF in to strafe Tripoli within the last two hours; the UN has said that the EU would be better off out of it all; Brown continues to be feted by the nwo simply because he's a toadying, traitorous you-know-what who left this country in dire straits; Blair is nowhere to be seen (he's probably still in Confessional); Cameron's been photographed with his youngest in a baby-sling while on a break in Cornwall, and Nick Clegg is crying in a corner while everyone tells him to 'man up and be a LibDem' - and we all know the punch-line to that.

Here's a selection of things that might have slipped under the radar:

Scumbag lobbyists
Poland continues the tradition.
Threats to freedom on St George's Day. Note the first comment from Archbishop Cranmer. He's right; it's just that we've had a collective memory loss. St George's Day is postponed until 2nd May because Easter Holy Week take precedence - it's always been this way.
Harriet Baldwin: The English Question
Treaty + change = British referendum - but don't bet on it.
Votes from -9months - 16yrs
Government debt, deficit, borrowing since 1946
Voting themselves more powers for economic governance
Naming names: Who governs us?
Never forget this:  "Oh no, they'd never do that!"   They would, they did, and they have.

It's a sorry state of affairs when the best man for Prime Minister of  this country is David Cameron.

Here's a very good video from across the pond:
