    "Beware the Ides of March"

    The BBC had this piece a few weeks ago, I thought it worth posting today, given the date:

    The famous phrase "Beware the Ides of March" appears in Shakespeare's Julius Caesar - and is the warning given to the Roman ruler by a soothsayer.

    Caesar ignored the far-sighted warning to stay away from the senate and, on 15 March in the year 44BC, he was assassinated by his own people - setting up the classic image of political betrayal that has been endlessly recycled by dramatists, cartoonists and comedy sketch writers.
