Cromwell spoke...


Given to the House of Commons 20 April 1653

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!

20 april 1653 was a long time ago, that was then this is now.
Cromwell had an army of support, who has an army of support to do the deed now?

It's a campaign, not a battle - keep yourselves safe at all times.

To await the angry mob of plebs, armed with scaffolds, rope and piano wire.

They have confused position with ability - lazy fucktards.

Their days are numbered, oh my beloved. It's in the air; nay, it's alomost tangible. What passes for modern British politics, this cozy consensus of liberal cliche and management gobbledegook, is finished. If this mess doesn't get sorted out soon, and common sense and truth return, there will be rioting.

Pinched for my blog.

Acknowledgements given to your blog

We need to send this out to everyone. I would also like to see people in all constituences sending a copy to their sitting MP. Just an innocent "Saw this on the web and thought it might interest you".

More pwoerful than threats. They have control of the army and police, they aren't bothered by threats, only votes.

Guido just wont have this result on his blog, I cant imagine why.
Considering that the BNP have never contested this seat before, it is a shit scaring event for the labour and tories. Harriot harperson says it is time to go to the bunker.

Our democracy is dead in the water,if you vote mainstream you just get different people leading you down the same path.

The state is tightening its grip on our lives and most go along with it as long as they feel they benifit from it, the fact that you will end up naked and defenceless seems unimportant.

We need a new strong man now like never before, the bloated and complacent upper ranks of society are slowly selling our freedoms and our democracy to the highest bidder.

The greatest ever Englishman has been dead for 351 years, we need another like him soon.

The Good Old Cause died in the fields around Daventry in 1661, when the Commonwealth men made a last stand against the turncoats who had brought a corrupt and bankrupt Stuart Monarchy back.

We will not see their like again, especially when History taught in schools is so debased.

Cromwell was a military dictator. Under his glorious leadership many things were banned (including celebration of Christmas). God knows why you're using him as some kind of libertarian hero.

Kinderling said...

The resulting Civil War lasted over many years and lost a sizeable proportion of the population fighting between Individualism (sided by Puritanism) and the greed of State (sided by Church of England).
Will we now have Libertarianism against Socialism? Or are civil wars really about Rights and Wrongs, about Morals? Because all Socialism and Libertarianism are doing is debasing everyone to their lowest character and end up having a hissy fit.

It's actually not that difficult. At the next protest, don't go to the protest (waste of time) but do it outside your local MP's house instead. Makes it nice and personal and he/she will spread the word amongst any other MPs that crowds were outside their home. It also means that being local, there would be a far bigger turnout, plod would have to be in 646 places at once with no idea how many people were likely to turn up anywhere!
Only thing you need to do is find out where your local MP lives. You can then use Google streetview (lol!) and tell people that's where you are going for a walk!

TERROR RAIDS UNEARTH HUGE AMOUNT OF BULLSHIT Print Email this story

POLICE raids on suspected terrorists have uncovered a potentially lethal stockpile of bullshit, it emerged last night.

Image
Crisps + shampoo = boom
According to security sources, police raids in Manchester, Liverpool and Clitheroe have so far yielded eight packets of crisps, some beard shampoo and a foreign looking hat.

A senior police source said: "Put the crisps in the hat, add some shampoo, give it a good shake and what have you got? Unimaginable carnage, that's what you've got.

"They were definitely planning to blow themselves up in the middle of the Arndale Centre, or the Trafford Centre, or the railway station, or St Ann's Square, or any one of the 200 pubs and clubs in central Manchester, or the airport, or in the middle of the M6. We're absolutely sure about that."

Sources said the raids had been brought forward while claiming the planned attacks were almost certainly due to be carried out today or tomorrow.

A source added: "We like to leave things to the last possible moment. Makes it a bit more like Spooks. If only we could discover a nuclear bomb that had a digital timer on it with just 10 seconds left. I'd love that."

Meanwhile a loophole which allows thousands of angry, bearded Pakistanis to enter Britain without background checks was doing its job very nicely indeed, the immigration minister told sources last night.

A source close to Phil Woolas said: "We let in just enough of them to keep you nice and scared, wait until they take a photograph of something and then arrest them at gunpoint."

Prime minister Gordon Brown last night claimed personal responsibility for both the surveillance operation and the arrests while a source stood behind him shaking his head and waving his hands

Those words, spoken 20th April 1653 are even more true today than they were then. Oh for a Cromwell to come & relieve us from this current vile crew (with a few - very few - honourable exceptions)

Good result! May there be many more like that. I have never been a BNP supporter until a few months ago but I will be voting BNP first opportunity I get as there seems to be no other option - Lib/Lab/Con will sell us down the river.

It was on a more important blog the Guido's, PoliticalBetting.Com.

Guthrum said...

FFS- why ? Why do you need a Mummy/Daddy to tell you what to do ?

The English Revolution was not one man, it was thousands saying no, to ship money,to the eleven years personal rule, monopolistic corporations, corruption in Government, enforcing foreign ideologies on the Scots and English, fight wars incompetantly with poor equipment. (Sounds familiar ?)

Cromwell was very late coming to the fore, but he knew how to deal with corrupt MP's, thats for sure

Kinderling said...

Civil War is not for pub discussion. It is a reactionary force of pent up anger. Betrayers are going to be killed. Puritanism demands honest conduct.Now there are many Homosexuals passing information back and forth between the Libertarian and Socialist camps where their indulgences are worshipped, what then is a Cromwell going to do to these Doms and Subs?

Great idea, carry the Cromwell speech on placards and dare plod to arrest you for using words likely to cause harrassment or distress but plead guilty because " That's the whole fucking point. "

Kinderling said...

"Fuck cromwell the puritan cunt. And fuck the BNP."

Absolutely right. Cromwell will bring no tolerance. There will be no Catholics, those who entertain themselves with imaginings; no Licentious, those who entertain themselves with each other; no BBC, those who entertain themselves with propaganda.

Think about what you ask for. It is not a Libertarian world rewarding you for what you do for yourself but Meritarian world rewarding you for what you do for others.
