The Australian Labor Party's media control and censorship bills are dead in the water, voluntarily withdrawn, and the Party itself is in chaos.

Some at least of Britain's media organisations have announced they will have nothing to do with government control of Press content. The Government is not the people, and some Britons at least still remember what their forebears fought and died for within living memory.

And so I offer you this. (Spoiler for anyone who hasn't seen Skyfall yet, but Judi Dench's delivery is brilliant and IMO worth the spoil.)

The first line of the stanza (from Tennyson's Ulysses) was not quoted by M in Skyfall, but I think it's relevant and it probably should have been. The whole stanza runs:

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.


Emphasis mine.
