Remember, remember...


An inspirational speech, I think, and actually rather accurate...


The only waste being that there were none of the fat-arsed, corrupt, dictatorial scum in the building when it went up.

But then, V had killed them all already...

After nearly a years borrowing a friend returned my copy of V for Vendetta finally; I think the 5th is a perfect time to re-read it...

Guy Fawkes remains the only person to enter Parliament with good intentions!

The only person to enter Parliament with honest intentions is, I believe, the original spirit of that quote.

Good? Well, that's a point of view that may be argued...

Good intentions? I think you will find that the road to a certain hot place is paved with them!
There are good commisars I am sure, just as there are good lawyers BUT if the system they work for is dirty and dishonest and corrupt then what is the point?
I think you will find that 'good intentions have caused more evil,murder,torture,cruelty and injustice than you can shake a stick at!
Stalin said he had "good intentions"
Hitler said he had "good intentions"
The French revolution started with "good intentions"
Mao said he had "good intentions"
Im pretty sure that the inquisition thought they had "good intentions"
In fact every evil despot or idea started with "good intentions"!

I want to see the commisars swinging from westminsters lamposts, but are my "intentions" good?

The speech and the peaceful "disobedience" are inspirational.

Just picked up a copy of 'V for Vendetta' on play.com. Thought it was time to see what all the fuss is about.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions

The road to hell is paved with frozen double glazing salesmen. Some of the younger demons go ice skating on it on Wednesday afternoons.

God, what a dreadful, dreadful film.

Read the original comic. This adaptation is just turgid and romantic propaganda.
