Words Of Wisdom

Courtesy of An Englishman's Castle are some words written by Philip Pullman. It would appear that the article appeared in the Times but was 'pulled' from the on-line version. However thanks to Google (you know - the site that 25 MPs wish to 'censure' due to its 'monopoly' - more in a separate post) it has been found.

Pullman's article is well worth reading and deals with the subject of loss of our liberties. Some extracts:

"Expressing an opinion is a dangerous activity

Whatever your opinions are, we don’t want to hear them

So if you threaten us or our friends with your opinions we shall treat you like the rabble you are

And we do not want to hear you arguing about it

So hold your tongue and forget about protesting

What we want from you is acquiescence."
