This is as relevant today as it was in 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!

(Oliver Cromwell)

.Yeah... right. Like he was such a great example a childish, manic depressive who only gave the vote to the richest male percentage of the population.

Good job there arn't any Irish board members... thay would have more than a few ripe words to say about that genocidal maniac...

He didn't even have the brains to make sure his warped legacy could continue (Thank goodness) as within 6 months of his death we were clamoring for a King.[size=18]

So nothing has changed really. Hence relevant.
