Never stop railing against the unjust


Online response to Nic Cicutti’s article headlined, The charge of the litigation brigade

What a literate forum. Perhaps I can add a little ditty that incorporates Nic Cicutti’s philosophy:
Lie down and be counted
Don’t take any more
Lie down and be counted
What are we standing for
Thanks to Neil Innes for that.
Or perhaps this extract from Ye Groat Marketing Tablet, 1215, by Squire Cicutti of the Fleet: “Ye peasants and other disgruntleds, test not the patience of good King John, for verily the odds are stacked against your Magna Carta and ye havest the chance of the snowball in Hades.”
I find the analogy of the bully and the dinner money appropriate. Never stop railing against what you consider unjust or unfair.
