The ultimate measure of a hero

Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul. Michel de Montaigne

Memory is the mother of all wisdom. Aeschylus

We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.  Marcel Proust

Bravery never goes out of fashion. W.M. Thackeray

The ultimate measure of a man is…where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. Martin Luther King Jr.

I am 96 years old and I hope that you will join us on this march on 23rd June for the future of Britain.

IF YOUR’E A CONSERVATIVE MP
AND NOT NUTS,

SAVE BRITAIN NOW

“The Conservative party is the most successful party in the democratic world, precisely because their reputation is that they don’t go nuts and become ideologically zealous…..all it would take here is a couple of dozen brave Conservative MPs.”
(Nick Clegg in conversation with Richard Thaler, The Guardian)

Does the judgment of posterity matter nothing in the age of instant fame? Can’t the reluctant Mythical Tory Saviours be moved (I just deleted ‘bribed’) by sugar-coated promises of everlasting fame and glory? They can be put into an exclusive club, and have as many titles and honours and free canapes and wet towels and holidays on private islands and TV appearances as they want in return for saving Britain by saying “Sorry, I was Wrong”.

Why is it easier to lead millions of people into hell than admit you made a mistake?

“There are few, very few, that will own themselves in a mistake, though all the World sees them to be in downright nonsense”
Jonathan Swift, in The Tatler No. 63 (September 1709)
