"The people of Liverpool, and the Liverpool People's Party, invite the Prime Minister to mind his own business. Here in Liverpool, we're nearer to space than we are to London. London is two hundred miles away; space is only one hundred miles away. People here pay as much heed to the Prime Minister as we do to the man in the moon."
