    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 3: SUTTON-PRYCE: "I don't believe that the formula which they're discussing at the moment is inevitable. I don't believe that because the world is on our back we have got to fold up. Sure there are difficulties -- wouldn't minimise those for a moment -- it's a hell of a tough road. wouldn't underplay the problems that we face for one second, that would be foolhardy. But neither do I see any point in totally sacrificing the heritage which we have earned in this country. So I hope ladies and gentlemen, that from this meeting you will go out and you will spared the word. That you will tell people -- if you want to lie down and let the tide wash over you and drown, well you can, that's your prerogative. But I am not going to do it, and I hope you are not going to do it. Let us get up off the floor, Let us pick up and let us go in there punching, because we are not beaten yet."
