Never apply for a job you don’t want and never start a fight you can’t win decisively.
Not enough will fight to win. Now it would only be a battle of principles worth dying for.
You may be right about that at least until they get to taking everything from everybody. I’ve seen stats that say during Rev 1 only 30% supported independence while 30% were Torries and the rest were uncommitted. I sense that is pretty much the same today with perhaps even less wanting their freedoms back and perhaps more supporting the governments march against those freedoms.
