"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."

And last but not least, here's one for the children (and those young at heart):

The White Dragon Flag of England

Some Churches across London will be ringing their bells for St George at 6pm this evening - hope you're one of the lucky ones.  I'll definitely be throwing open all the windows here in the hope of hearing something on the wind.


  1. Happy St. George's day to you too GV

  2. Thanks, Froggie. Apart from the usual wittering of Yasmin Alilbai-Brown in today's Independent the coverage isn't too bad, for a change!
