Apologies to Winston

As a result of yesterday’s reflection on events at
the youth club and my use of a quote from the Sci-Fi spoof Galaxy Quest I had an e-mail from Daniel (thanks). He felt a fuller “no surrender” quote was in order and send me the text of a Churchill speech from 1940. I’ve modified it slightly ….
Ladies and Gentlemen
We shall not flag nor fail. We shall go on to
the end. We shall work with young people in Rural
or Urban settings, in Village Halls and on Estates ; we shall minister with growing confidence and growing faith.
We shall defend young people of our island whatever the cost may be; we shall fight the media,
educational-exclusion, branding, ?Asbos? and lack of opportunity.
We shall never surrender!
