“You think you will defeat us?”
“Let me take you by the hand
and lead you through the streets of London
I’ll show you something
to make you change your mind”
These lyrics from well-known folk singer Ralph McTell are on a handwritten note which is to be found among the many offerings commemorating the dead at London’s Kings Cross station.
These days we have seen a lot of bravado going the rounds. I’m no hero, I’ll settle for this. I think I’ll save the whooping and the whirling for when we have won.
