"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."

Post Of The Week

"Here we are in a rainy town square in Essex on a rainy Monday afternoon in April, 2012. It also happens to be ‘St George’s Day’ although you might be forgiven for not having noticed. It’s pouring down and the small crowd that has gathered outside the council offices are huddling under their umbrellas. They’re waiting for the mayor of Basildon to emerge to ceremoniously raise England’s national flag. The borough always organises great family-oriented celebrations for St George’s Day every year..."

Read it ALL to see the reality of St George's Day today in a small corner of England. The English Standard is relatively new to the blogosphere but the authors are seasoned veterans. It's worth book-marking so please go and support them.
