"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."

Two Quotes For You

"... the Arab spring has shown that denying people their rights in the name of stability and security actually makes countries less stable in the end. Over time, the pressure builds up until the people take to the streets and demand their freedoms."
And
"Corruption denies the people their economic and political stake – the citizenship, the job and the voice that they want. Worse still, it breeds a cynicism and a sense of rage."

These are extracts from a speech that Cameron is due to deliver in Djakarta later today. They're fine, insightful words which should be applauded but, alas, not worth the teleprompter he reads from. Has the man no self-awareness, no sense of irony? Don't his own words make him pause for thought?

As my old Gran used to say, "Fine words butter no parsnips".

Odds & Sods:
Cameron to chair new UN Committee

It will be blog-lite today as I continue to wade through those Europe 2020 documents from yesterday.

  1. Excellent, GV.

    As I've blogged today, Cameron has a plum new UN job. Must've been a reward for "gay marriage", diversity and "sustainable development" which he's been feverishly pushing, against the will of the UK populace.

    The man is a charlatan.

  2. Yes indeed, Fausty. All roads lead to the UN, Agenda 21, sustainability and the nwo. I think that the electorate are finally understanding that we and our opinions just don't matter; we're the "small people" and must learn our place.
