The American Revolution was birthed in Boston, Massachusetts, as American Revolutionaries such as Samuel Adams, John Adams and John Hancock fought against the oppressive nature of our British rulers, which included one of the most important acts of civil disobedience in the entire world; the Boston Tea Party.
Over 200 years later, citizens of Great Britain are protesting British rule, calling themselves "Tea Partiers" and proclaiming their first event, the "Brighton Tea Party". Did I miss the memo, because I thought America had full ownership to "Tea Parties, Tea Partiers, and the Tea Party", however, it appears our British allies are looking to us for guidance.
Led by Daniel Hannan, our American Tea Parties have some friends in Great Britain after all.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Brighton Tea Party, and apologies to those who couldn’t get it. We opened and filled an adjoining room, but it was still quite a squash. The hotel manager told me afterwards that there had been more than 300 people present, not counting those who had had to be turned away.
If you can run a tea-party in Brighton Pavilion – the constituency which the Greens are most hopeful of winning – you can run one anywhere. You don’t have to be a small-government Conservative to feel that taxation, spending and borrowing are currently too high.
Let me say it one more time. Gordon Brown has doubled the national debt. Every second, it rises by another 5,000 pounds. Our deficit is 12.6 per cent of GDP compared to Greece’s 12.7. All this despite the additional trillion pounds taken in taxation since 1997.
We can’t afford another month of this, let alone another five years.
Thanks to the Freedom Association for helping to put everything together, and warm thanks to James and Laragh from my office for coming to Brighton to help.
Daniel Hannan is a British Patriot, who I wish would become an American citizen and run for Congress in America, however, someone has to stand against oppressive taxation in Britain, perhaps it will result in a British political Revolution.
