I put a post here but thought it better to remove it and post the subject on my blog to save any 'upset' (Rioting, burning of cars A-la Paris etc.) Wink

Would that these words, coined by Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1839), were true:

True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
States can be saved without it!

If so, Old Nail, people like us may be able to make a difference...

Don.

I doubt my 99p Biro can stem the tide of our colonisation but I shall wield it in opposition at every opportunity.

I have a fear of my grandchild asking me in years to come what I did to oppose the regime of change that went on to take away her freedoms, 'it didn't seem anything to do with me' wouldn't really cut it would it?
