What Persuaded Cameron To Make A Principled Decision That We Are Entitled To A Referendum On The EU - In 2018

A  man was condemned to death for stealing a kiss from the King's daughter. He told the King that if his life was spared, he would teach the King's favorite horse to sing. Instead, the King made a bargain.

"I'll spare your life for one year," the King said. "If in that year you teach my horse to sing, you will go free. If not, your sentence will be carried out."

Later in the stables the condemned man, chained in the stall, was brushing the horse and crooning in its ear when a stablehand came up. "Why'dye make sooch a harebrained bargain?" he asked.

"A lot can happen in a year," the man replied. "The King could die. The horse could die. I could die. And who knows? The horse might learn to sing."
