Can we like Europe but not be part of the EU?... now that's the question. I love Europe as a place and I love Europeans as a people, but the whole issue of a mass of unelected officials spraying our cash around without being held to account gives me the screaming heebyjeebies.... With LINCOLN being released shortly in the flix, I am always reminded of the quote by another great US president, Thomas Jefferson;
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. "
or, as summed up quite succinctly in V for Vendetta;
"People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people"
