Do you hate your MP? Cromwell the grasping hoon.

Whilst you sit there looking at red letters demanding payment, you read about your MP claiming expensive kettles, having work done on his bell tower, their husband tossing off to porn films that you paid for, claiming back their legal expenses when they are sued and even refusing to pay back the stolen moneys when asked by HM Govt.

When will it end? If these thieves have their way never.

So imagine my sweet joy when the following came through to my inbox.

Dear, Bloggers, Patriots, Political Activists, Campaigners and Voters

In light of the recent and ongoing MP's expenses scandal a new website has been developed and launched in order to protest our collective disgust. The site has been set up to be used as a tool for the general public to use to send emails to any particular MP.

What is You've Been Cromwelled?
On the 20th April 1653 Oliver Cromwell made a speech where he dismissed Parliament:
...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 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; your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse the Augean Stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings, and which by God's help and the strength He has given me, I now come to do.
“I command ye, therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up
the doors. You have sat here too long for the good you do. In the name of God, go! 

We feel this speech is as relevant today as it was way back then and as such we have designed You've Been Cromwelled to send this exact excerpt of the speech to any MP of your choosing along with a little more information. We have also set it up so that the site automatically keeps track of how many times an individual MP has been "Cromwelled". We have also created a league table of the 25 most "Cromwelled" MP's. The beauty of the site is that when a user "Cromwells" any MP a pre-configured mail gets sent to that MP the mail gets sent from the site, so that the only trace of who sent the mail leads back to You've Been Cromwelled. The mails reply address is the_people@youve-been-cromwelled.org and we will be publishing any replies we receive from MP's.

In conjunction with the email campaign we are also in the process of arranging a protest march in London on the 20th April 2010, additionally we are also calling for a Day of National Disobedience where we are calling on people to refuse to pay any tax whatsoever for one day only, whether it be tax on their groceries, or tax on their wages. We have named this day "Cromwell Day".

What Can You Do To Help?
 We would be very appreciative if you could support us by placing a link on your relative sites to help get the word out about this campaign. We feel this campaign can potentially be very effective as it is so close to the proposed General Election. Please find attached a few images which you could also place on your sites.
There is a Facebook Group to support this campaign, which is located here:http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=261404815198 where it is our intention to gather as much support as possible nationwide.
For further information please take the time to visit www.youve-been-cromwelled.org, If you find you require more information please do not hesitate to contact us on info@youve-been-cromwelled.org .
If you know of any organisations or individuals that could help further this campaign it would be appreciated if you could get them to contact us. Indeed if you are interested in helping please let us know.
The site has just gone online and there will inevitably be a few teething problems if you encounter any could you please let us know?

Many Thanks in Advance for you support

The You've Been Cromwelled Team

So I figured that Both Newport MP's(Paul Flynn/Jessica Morden) had to have one for their theft of my tax money. Quentin Davies for his bell tower claim and of course Austin Mitchell for the most expensive kettle claim in The Commons.  Oh an of course Bob Ainsworth, the tash wearing Def. Sec.

I also claim the first Cromwell, on that talentless bint Kerry McCarthy the Twitter Twatter Tzar.
