But we are the people of England; and we have not spoken yet

Off to Swindon, where something akin to dialogue is taking place between Rulers and Unruly. Tony Blair hoses off a wall and demands respect, favourite word of role models like Vito Corleone and 50 Cent. The next day the reply comes, in 3ft-high letters - "Fuck off keep off our land Blair". Will Tony go back to clean the wall again? No.

GK Chesterton's predictive skills were certainly spot on so far as Blair goes:
"Lords without anger and honour, who dare not carry their swords"

But I don't think that these are quite the people or the riposte that he had in mind...

Some people of England yesterday. Probably just as well Chesterton was spared the sight.
