Bit of trivia

Extract from a very famous letter.

Bet you cannot guess who wrote it, and to whom it was sent.

"Stop sending people to kill me. We've already captured five of them, one of them with a bomb and another with a rifle. [...] If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send one to Moscow, and I won't have to send a second."

I chased a bug around a tree,
I’ll have his blood, he knows I will.
A bug, a bug, a bug, I chased,
the bug around a tree.

I caught that bug and asked, "Tell me,
Oh bug, why do you pester me?"
He said, in all sincerity,
"For curiosity!"
For cu... for cu... for cu... for cu...
For curiosity.

History it must be remembered is no more than his story.

And often does not fit well with the available evidence.

An easy one, now, but topical.

“You have sat there too long for all the good you have done, In the name of God, go!"

So, who is David Davis quoting?
