If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

30 years on ...

Mr Eugenides' (to whom a tip of the hat) Quote of the Day:

There is only one service they can do the nation now. It is to stand not upon the order of their going, but go. The damage that they have done to Britain is immeasurable.

Our ancestors built a land of pride and hope and confidence in the future, a land whose influence grew out of all proportion to her size, whose constitution guaranteed a balance between freedom and order which used to be the British hallmark and became a model for the world. That was the heritage they handed down to us.

What would they think of Labour Britain today?

Margaret Thatcher, October 1978
