Oliver Cromwell’s remarks to the Rump Parliament on April 20th, 1653, should be ringing round the halls of Westminster today.
In the Daily Mail, Richard Littlejohn points out that the British people no longer live in a democratic land, and that a rebellion of the political class including the bureaucracy, the media (of course) and the careerists in Parliament itself, has now rendered voting obsolete.
The politicians, who so ardently promised to respect the results of the referendum on leaving the EU, have shown all their cards. They never intended to honour their promises. Their abject surrender to the commissars of the EU has established their lack of character. Indeed, treason is not too strong a word in this case.
In the English Civil War, it was Parliament against the overbearing king who refused to recognize the limits to his powers. Now, it is the political class, the Deep State, the media, and all their accompanying parasites seeking to maintain their power at all costs—even to the extent of destroying the legitimacy of the British state itself.
Now is the time for a new Cromwell to sally forth, fan the flames of liberty, and cleanse the rot from Parliament.
