The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

It is the last refuge of a scoundrel, ppauper. Just make sure you have a fresh supply.

The BBC tells us that the "turnout" was 42.5%. Strange word to use. Just like the EU bureaucrats, they are struggling with how to comment on this story. It doesn't fit in with their narrative that all Europeans love each other dearly, except for those nasty 52% of Brits.

I love such moments of truth. We may speak of European values, protection of minority rights, climate change and so on but at the end of the day a ruling principle appears,  which stripped of all disguise, is surely the mere primitive doctrine that might is right. That's why a country like Kosovo may exist and a country like Catalonia may not.

That ideal died in 1917.
