"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."

Quote Of The Day

It's early so there may yet be others, though this will take some beating:

"Just because a minority of people do something, it doesn’t mean it should be protected. A minority of people do graffiti — is that OK? You don’t support murderers and gangsters just because they’re a minority."

That's Paul Bartlett, the Stony Stratford Councillor, talking about... paedophiles? Rapists? No, smokers.
