Following on from the Boston Tea Party (No taxation without representation) We have now started the NORTHAMPTON TEA PARTY ( Say No to No Tea at Delapre) at:
or search for us 'Northampton Tea Party' on your facebook page.
Below is a copy of our inaugural speech given in the Walled Garden this morning
This battlefield of kings, this green oasis, This earth of majesty, this seat of nuns, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of a Liberal Democrat Council, This happy breed of Northampton men and women, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which served in it's walled garden cups of tea, Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of Northampton Borough Council ,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this Abbey they call Delapre!!!
Let us therefore commit ourselves to drink from the cup of thy beauty and thus defy the planners and plotters of Clegg's Army, defiant in the knowledge that truth is our tea cup and righteousness our saucer.
