The Guardian should beware of the hubris of imperial over-reach.

For heathen heart that puts her trust   
In reeking pen and self-hoisted petard,
All valiant dust that builds on dust,
And guarding, calls not Thee to guard,   
For frantic boast and foolish word—
Thy mercy on Thy People, Lord!

(Kipling slightly amended).
