"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Ye Sordid Prostitute



For the good of the country
I'm speechless; fortunately, Cromwell wasn't:
It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

  1. He's shameless isn't he? I was just reading the article and saw your title in my blogroll and instantly knew you were posting about it :)

    He'll do anything for power won't he?

    I hope the Conservatives laugh in his face!

  2. Honestly Sue, my stomach's still full of knots and fluttering butterflies at the mere thought of this being entertained by Cameron. I'm absolutely beside myself at the moment and I haven't even looked at the deeper implications of this for Labour/Brown & the conference yet because I can't get beyond the headline. Spitting feathers and going long on piano wire.
