Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches

This has been sent to every MP.......!

Jack Lewis



"It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place,which you have
 dishonoured 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 bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man
 amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth? Ye are grown
 intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get
 grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance."


Oliver Cromwell
