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 bartered 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 defiled this sacred place, and turned 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 redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.
Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God’s help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.
I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.
Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.
In the name of God, go!
THE XR PEOPLES SPEEECH IN TRAF SQUARE ON OCTOBER 18TH NEEDS TO DECIDE TO RETURN THE FOLLOWING DAY WHEN PARLIAMENT IS SITTING

PEOPLES VOTE MARCH 750,OOO
SURROUND PARLIAMENT TAKE BACK CONTROL
Voting Yes to Brexit may be early sign of Parkinsons.
Compulsive behaviour that harms you but you proceed with anyway like gambling, binge eating is a sign of PD.
A research project I took part in has concluded that pro- Brexit views can be similarly classified.
87% of newly diagnosed PD sufferers were found to be pro -Brexit.
THE STUDY HAS NOW BEEN CURTAILED
Activists are refusing to leave two-miles of London roads with at least 5,000 people willing to be arrested by the Met – who are using up to eight officers to pick up and carry each person to a police van. Thousands of activists openly mocked the police’s threats that they will be arrested unless they all move to Trafalgar Square and stay off the streets (inset). But Scotland Yard’s attempts to reopen two miles of streets around Parliament failed within hours. Instead Extinction Rebellion were able to set up a ‘village’ on the roads under Nelson’s Column with its own improvised cycle lane, food stalls, community kitchen and a ‘well-being sanctuary’ for tired or stressed environmentalists as well as an extraordinary outdoor rave where people spent hours ‘dancing their feelings’ (left). A group have also placed 800 potted trees outside Parliament (right). Admitting defeat Inspector Simon Rooke, who is based in the square, said: ‘They are very well organised and very well-funded. That’s all I can say’. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, whose building was blockaded this morning, said police were not being ‘proactive’ enough and were instead ‘standing around the edges’ as the activists grabbed control.
As an anarchist and enthusiast for space exploration I get the usual silly stuff – ‘so you’re in favour of the military industrial complex’. NO I said SPACE exploration cloth ears.
I’m asked – ‘when did poor people go into space?’ Well YURI GAGARIN’S parents were firstly labourers on a collective farm then his father a carpenter and Gagarin himself was a metal worker in a foundry. Even NEIL ARMSTRONG’ s parents were humble office clerks who had to move repeatedly to stay in work. COLIN PILLINGER – the mutton chopped cheery organiser of BEAGLE TWO- had a dad who was a gas fitter in Kingswood near Bristol.
On exploration – TENZING NORGAY was a Sherpa, Edmund Hilary a bee keeper who detested the rich, and arguably the first man to reach the North pole was MATTHEW HENSON – a black man, cabin boy, hat shop assistant and humble fucking clerk for the rest of his life.
There’s the capitalist interpretation of the world and the anarchist view. Right now most people think the capitalist view is the right one, the common sense one and the anarchist view nonsense or even ‘loony’. We have lost the battle for ‘common sense’. We can blame everyone but ourselves for this but in truth we have marginalised ourselves by our concerns and actions and willingly put our necks in the ‘loony’ noose being dangled before us.I don’t have the answers to this problem but to begin somewhere with your help………
Once you put on the ‘anarchist goggles’ you interpret everything through these eyes, through the anarchist prism, you get a way of viewing the world that explains every action of the state………………at its most extreme this leads to the 9/11 and other conspiracy theorists but will tell you the Iraq war was ‘all about oil’ and explain why you need to demonstrate against cheap flights at your local airport and oppose the building of a cancer research facility. Critical thinking gets abandoned along the way, crap ideas are widely accepted as self-evident truths and we campaign against things as anarchists which will bring benefits to our fellow working class humans……..holidays in the sun being one of them but many members of the working class also find a cure for cancer a surprisingly attractive proposition.
