They may take our lives.....*

Andy Burnham on BBC Questiontime " Freedom is not absolute "( hat tip to Dizzy).
I am appalled. This man is a servant of the Crown and a minister in our Government, yet believes that any freedoms we have are at the whim of the party in power ( and particularly the Labour Party).
It's a theme I have visited before but we should all remember that Freedom consists in Service.
So Shakespeare proposed in the Tempest, perhaps his greatest play. I know the headmaster will disagree, but hey... he's only an English Professor.
* Quote from Mel Gibson in Braveheart which finishes "... but they will never take our Freedom!!!"
