"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."

I'll be glad when this wedding is over; I'm so sick of the constant whingeing and whining in the press.

The latest offensive story comes from Glasgow. where one of the cake-makers banned the Union Flag and any bunting because they decided it "unacceptable" and "sectarian" after complaints.  McVitie's management has now backed down but this surely falls into the ranks of 'You couldn't make it up'.
"A group of staff were putting up bunting and a Union Jack in the canteen at lunchtime when one woman shouted that it was offensive. She said she would be bringing in an Irish tricolour if the Union Jack stayed up. Several staff then went to complain to management. They say it was affront to their dignity at work."
How petty and mean-spirited some people are.
