Quote for General Election Day – 1

‘Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation.

You were deputed here to get grievances redressed; are you not yourselves become the greatest grievance?

Make haste ye venal slaves, be gone.’

Oliver Cromwell speaking in Parliament in 1653 denouncing MPs’ greed.
