We join with Suzanne Ferrett at Passion For The Nation, in making this Declaration over the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland:

TODAY’S  EUROPEAN  PARLIAMENTARY  ELECTIONS

According to God’s word in Psalm 145:4, ‘One generation shall declare Your works to another’:

We decree and declare a fresh awareness of the Godly heritage within our political system, of the Biblical foundations under it and of the principles released through it, will sweep across this land. We declare media, churches, schools and individuals will see the relevance and significance of that heritage; teaching and instructing according to the truths of history.

We thank You for that Godly heritage and in the Name of Jesus, we declare it will be recovered, restored and connected to Your future purpose for this land. We decree and declare this Nation will be connected, shaped, led, governed and influenced according to Your Kingdom purpose and plan, and we decree the outworking of the European Parliamentary elections will cause this Nation to move according to the Spirit of God.

Even as the winds of God are blowing across this land, we declare His people will stand upon their watch, to see and to pray, that the political weariness upon the land will be lifted and His Will done. We declare He is working within the power structures of our land, and He is working within the streets and communities, that this Nation will walk in the fullness of its God-given calling.

Freed at last from satan – my chains fall off!

(7 of 7) Months after that night of destiny in 1989 I trashed my occult and New Age books, yet I kept some items that were very significant to membership in those occult brotherhoods. But very soon, troubles brewed up within my relationships. And they got worse, and worse. So I asked for prayer help and gathered all those remaining things, such as ritualistic items and pictures. Right at the peak of my trouble I heard an almost audible voice instruct me,

Burn what you’ve collected – NOW!”

Never, ever, would I have believed what was to happen next:

Out in the backyard I piled those membership items onto an area of gravel and, putting a match to them, I sincerely repented.

Fanning the flames, I apologised deeply to God for all my past rebellious, sinful activity and specifically renounced satan and all evil connected with those occult associations.

As I asked God to forgive me, heavy invisible shackles suddenly dropped off my wrists!

I felt, and was, free, completely free – exactly as is jubilantly sung in Charles Wesley’s great hymn And Can It Be? 

WOW, from despair to jubilation within a split second!  What utter freedom!  Praise Him!

That hymn’s lyrics present the simple yet sublime salvation found in our Father’s good news about Jesus.

How aptly the third verse describes my personal situation and what had just happened – my wonderful liberation from invisible bondage to satan.:

1. And can it be that I should gain
An int’rest in the Saviour’s blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?

Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God shouldst die for me?

2. He left His Father’s throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace!
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam’s helpless race!

‘Tis mercy all, immense and free,
For, O my God, it found out me.

3. Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night.
Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray:
I woke the dungeon flamed with light!

My chains fell off, my heart was free,
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

4. No condemnation now I dread:
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine!
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,

Bold I approach th’ eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

If you’re unfamiliar with Charles Wesley brother of the renowned evangelical founder of Methodism, John Wesley, read here about his equally famous influence as author of many well-known hymns; eg. Love Divine, all love’s excelling, Hark the herald angels…

Listen to one of the greatest hymns as broadcast some years ago in Songs of Praise,   thanks to Fabio Ramsay.:

I will rejoice in the Lord, I will exult in the victorious God of my salvation! (Hab 3:1)

Get ready for a world-wide shifting, turning and radical transformation

Posted this afternoon at Ignite Ireland Ministry:

ARE YOU READY FOR THE RIVERS OF HIS GLORY, OR HAVE YOU BECOME AS THE STIFF-NECKED..?!

Early hours of this morning I was just beginning to wake up when I clearly heard the Spirit of God speak to me saying,

“DAUGHTER TELL MY PEOPLE, MY RIGHTEOUS REMNANT, THAT A GREAT REVEALING HAS NOW BEGUN, FOR MANY NATIONS HAVE BEEN IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION.., WATCH AND PRAY FOR THERE IS A SHIFTING, TURNING AND A RADICAL SPIRITUAL TRANSFORMATION THAT IS NOW BEGINNING TO TAKE PLACE IN THE EARTH, FOR MANY NATIONS ARE NOW ON A DIVINE COLLISION COURSE WITH THE POWER OF MY GLORY AND JUDGEMENT, SEE! FOR NOW IS THE SEASON OF SUPERNATURAL REALIGNMENT AND A RE-POSITIONING OF THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, WHO CAN STOP IT??? FOR I TELL YOU THE TRUTH, THE RIVERS OF MY GLORY ARE UNSTOPPABLE AND UNCONTAINABLE, HE WHO DARES TO HINDER THE WORK OF MY SPIRIT SHALL BE UTTERLY DESTROYED, BELOVED ARE YOU READY? HAVE YOU MADE ROOM FOR MY RIVER OR ARE YOU ONE THAT HAS BECOME AS THE STIFF-NECKED?”, says God.

True news about Trump that ALL Christians need to know re. persecution

 

This news follows hot on the heels of the the murders of Christians in Sri Lanka whilst celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday, 21st April (as covered here).  Last Tuesday April 23rd, the Washington Examiner announced:

Trump Privately Urges World Leaders To Take Better Care of Christians…

‘White House acting chief-of-staff Mick Mulvaney said on Tuesday a little known fact about President Trump is that he often brings up Christianity when meeting with foreign leaders.

“What you don’t know about is what goes on behind closed doors. I very rarely talk about my private meetings with the president,” Mulvaney said at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington, DC. “I can assure you that I have been sitting with him in the Oval Office, in the Cabinet Room, with leaders from around the world where he will look at them and say, ‘Now, you’re not doing enough to take care of the Christians in your country,’ or, ‘Thank you for helping the Christians in your country’.”

“That is heavy stuff, and it strikes me it’s probably something that hasn’t been articulated in the Oval Office in way too long,” he added.

Addressing a crowd of more than 1,000 Catholics, Mulvaney said the Trump has embraced faith in the White House and encourages Christians and people from all religions who work there to “take their faith and work it into our policies…If you take a look at what the administration has done in the first two and a half years, I think you can see the principles of our faith being manifested,” Mulvaney said.

‘Mulvaney told attendees that too few people across the country are showing their faith and publicly embracing it. “Not enough people are open in their faith, not enough people are comfortable saying, ‘Yeah, you know what? I went to church today”.’

I found this gem buried in Friday’s Koenigs’ Eye-View From The White House, which quotes Western Journal’s article on that news.

You may recall my writing some time ago that the White House has never been as open and welcoming to Christians as it is under President Trump’s administration. Bill opens his latest with this insight,

‘As I continue to report from the White House, moving into my 19th year, we have never had an administration more supportive of Israel and willing to take on Israel’s greatest threat — Iran. Israel’s appreciation was confirmed by members of the Israeli media in my White House conversations on March 25, during Benjamin Netanyahu’s participation in President Trump’s official Golan Heights’ resolution.

‘Vice-President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are evangelicals who fully understand the significance of Israel, both biblically, strategically and practically. Additionally, staunch supporter of Israel National Security Advisor John Bolton’s hardline position persuaded President Trump to eliminate all waivers to countries buying oil from Iran and will impose costly sanctions if they continue to buy oil from Iran.’

What About ‘Touch Not The Lord’s Anointed’?

In view of this important insight into the character of President Trump, and of Dr Lance Wallnau’s hearing from the Lord’s anointing him as a ‘modern-day’ Cyrus, I want to refer briefly to the implicit relevance of ‘touching God’s anointed’.  This is succinctly explained at Jesus Alive as follows:

‘We can also see David applying this when he refused to “touch” (or kill) King Saul in (1 Sam 24:4-13) because he was “God’s anointed.” In (1 Sam 24:9-10)(NASB), David says to Saul, “Why do you listen to the words of men, saying, ‘Behold, David seeks to harm you’? (10) Behold, this day your eyes have seen that the Lord had given you today into my hand in the cave, and some said to kill you, but my eye had pity on you; and I said, ‘I will not stretch out my hand against my lord, for he is the Lord’s anointed.'” David repeats something similar to this later in (1 Sam 26:9-11,23-24), when he has a second chance to kill Saul, and repeats it a third time in (2 Sam 1:13-16) when someone later claims to kill Saul.’

THEREFORE, in regards to the official state visit of the President of the United States of America to Britain, the grossly ill-mannered, arch-hypocritical actions of the leader of HM Opposition (Corbyn) and Speaker of the House of Commons (Bercow) in refusing to meet Trump or allow his addressing Parliament will, according to that scripture and the law of sowing and reaping, bode ill for them personally. That is, there are deep personal consequences to their decisions as representatives of the citizens of Great Britain.

Moreover, it makes me wonder if this may have applied to an ordained minister who’d attended, albeit in an unofficial capacity, the anti-Trump demonstrations organised by the Mayor of London. Subsequently, this minister encountered a radical change to his well-known ministry in its becoming peripatetic as a result of its permanent base having to close!

I wonder, therefore, if that change may be connected with his having taken a stance that specifically opposed (ie. to ‘touch not’) the Lord’s anointed leader of America??

Passion For The Nation: Declarations to shape a nation, day 11

Readers will recall the work of Suzanne Ferrett and the many declarations over our nation she publishes at Passion for the Nation, as well as a Spiritual Magna Carta. (Click link for introduction). Today’s declaration appears below:

Declarations to Shape a Nation – Day 11

National Day of Prayer

We thank You for the mantle of prayer resting upon this nation at this time, for the individuals, groups and movements You are raising up, for the diversity of how people pray and the different anointings, callings and strategies being released at this time, orchestrated by Your Spirit. Even as Your word states ‘if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in Heaven,’ we declare as the Headship of Jesus is established over Your people, a new ‘oneness’ in prayer will be released, uniting those of different generations, culture groups and streams. We praise You for the work of Your Spirit and for the depth and width of Your purposes at this time. We declare as Your people pray, Your Kingdom will be released in great measure, changing hearts, touching lives and transforming communities.

We decree and declare the Name of Jesus will be lifted over the villages, towns and cities in this nation, that the awakening breath of Jesus will blow in us and through us – until this nation is fully His. We decree and declare God’s people in this land will arise, going through the gates; preparing the way, removing the stones, lifting a banner for the people.  We speak to this nation in the Name of Jesus and we declare “surely your salvation is coming.”

Now, as Parliament meets today, we decree and declare the outworking of every emotion, frustration and weariness will serve and facilitate His purposes today.

We declare the Kingdom of God will be established over every other rule and dominion, of power, of greed and of the thoughts of man, that the new season God has planned for this nation will be delivered in full, in order and on time.

We declare the power of God-appointed leadership to bring about Kingdom purpose. We declare this nation will be led throughout this Brexit season by those appointed by Him for this task, those carrying God-given vision, supported and surrounded by the prayers of His people and aided by the Hosts of Heaven.

As the European Leaders meet tonight, we come into agreement with Psalm 29, and we declare “Your Voice shakes the wilderness …and causes the deer to give birth, it strips the forest bare”. We declare God’s Voice will arise, silencing every other voice. We decree and declare the outworking of every emotion, frustration and weariness will serve and facilitate His purposes this day.

Amen, may it be so!

Rebuilding our Political System

A well-considered summary of our national situation and spiritually preferred outcome. Thank you Nicholas. (PS. Mon 8th @17:15 – blogger ‘Archbishop Cranmer’ has posted an in-depth item on ‘Royal Assent: Crown neutrality on Brexit is unsustainable’ )

All Along the Watchtower

Positive prophecies about the Brexit process speak of renewal and progress, of the UK being transformed into a forerunner or firstfruits of the end times revival. The focus of these various utterances tends to be on the miracles and spiritual salvation that God will bring when He visits our beleaguered nation. However, they also speak of government and politics, and I believe that is correct: the coming Millennium involves the rule of the saints over the Gentiles, so preparation for this rule is an appropriate topic of prophetic utterances.

There is a spiritual entanglement (net/serpent/dragon/Leviathan) that is corrupting our politics. It is a tyrant in its way. At the terrestrial level, though, one can also discern a number of issues that have broken the system.

One is the lack of accountability between the Cabinet and the People. Our system survived for a long time with this defect because our cultural…

Vision of The Rock in Parliament

Have just received the following email from one of my lead contributors of material on the EU. Dave Chapman informs me,

“We had a gathering here last Thursday and one sister who was very encouraged from the ministry time had a waking picture/dream the next morning. She is a trusted friend and  woman of God. I felt it to be quite significant and have her permission to send on to you for encouragement and use if you choose.”

The Vision:

‘This morning as I awoke, God gave me a picture of a small rock that was thrown into the meeting chamber of the Houses of Parliament and it knocked the Mace to the floor. The rock was grey and spherical but I had the word ‘cornerstone’.

‘The rock then continued to grow and crushed the pews where the MPs sit and then it outgrew the chamber and crushed the walls of the Houses or Parliament to the extent that people who came to see the Houses of Parliament could see the rock poking out of the building.’

The Explanation:

‘The Rock is Jesus and God is not only shifting and shaking Parliament but He is also dismantling it and He will rebuild it. The rebellion and disobedience over Brexit has caused this and He is humbling Parliament and taking over this and the UK through our rebellion and disobedience.

‘The new Parliament and His glory through it and this nation will be attractive to many over the World. This will go out from the UK – both His rule and reputation over what He’s done here to the nations in parallel with the Gospel.’

Dave adds, “The Mace in Parliament is the symbol of royal authority and without it neither House can meet or pass laws. The House of Commons’ mace is a silver gilt ornamental club of about five feet in length, dating from the reign of Charles II.”

So we praise and thank you Lord for all You’re doing and about to do…

This vision immediately brings to mind king Nebuchadnezzar’s very troubling dream of a huge statue demolished by a small rock, and of OT prophet Daniel’s Holy Spirit-inspired full account of the secret dream and its meaning interpretation.:

“…You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth….”

Monday newsmix #1 – Lordship of Jesus Christ over Britain and our government

A great deal is happening not only in the news but also on personally, as well as lots for this blog. Kindly bear with me whilst I dash out items and hope you won’t feel flooded.

We start with this from the Keep Praying and Bless cycle, to which I referred regarding Ireland in both footnotes to the word Emma Stark brought from Belfast last month.

We’ve repeated this since 2012 and this morning found ourselves at Day 69, which just so ‘happens’ to be for WESTMINSTER!  (click/tap for full story)

Although its original date was 26 July 2012, perhaps you’d like to join us in praying the following for blessing everyone living and working in Westminster, especially parliament and the government, and for the protection of Great Britain and Ireland:

 

Decree: “I AM THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES”

“Therefore, God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2: 9-11)

“We decree that: JESUS CHRIST IS LORD, TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER, and that HIS NAME IS ABOVE EVERY OTHER NAME. AT HIS NAME EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS THAT “JESUS IS LORD”, TO THE GLORY OF GOD. WE DECREE THAT THE GOVERNMENT OF THE BRITISH ISLES IS ON HIS SHOULDERS!”

Aaronic Blessing: ‘The Lord bless you and keep you, The Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, The Lord lift up His countenance toward you and give you peace. Thus, we put His name upon you and He will bless you’ (Numbers 6:24-27).

“We bless the nations and islands of the British Isles with knowing and believing that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father, and we bless them with bowing the knee to the name of Jesus.”

Plus the prayer Jesus taught followed by a prayer of protection:

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us our daily ‘bread’ and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sinned against us; lead us not to into testing but deliver us from the evil one, for Yours is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.

“Almighty Father, we come to You in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, and in that mighty Name we break the power of every strategy and assignment sent against the British Isles and Ireland, and against ourselves and (names….).

“We pray the mighty covering of the Living Blood of Jesus Christ over ourselves (and named persons) villages, towns and cities; over our coastlands, seaports and airports; over our roadways, railways, waterways and ferries.

“We ask that You release the angelic host to protect us from every spiritual and terrorist attack – especially our landmarks and each member of the royal family person and their premises and in public.

“Lift each citizen above every circumstance and crisis. We affirm the finished work of Christ over all demonic forces and decree: no weapon formed against the plans and purposes for the British Isles and Ireland will prosper. We also decree: no longer will violence be heard in our land, or destruction within or at our borders. We bless the atmosphere to be charged with peace and order. Amen’” (Isaiah 54:17 & 60:18) 

See Day 1 for scriptural principles of decrees and blessings, plus background.

Prophecy Update 2: Press reports ‘no deal’ Brexit is ‘back from the dead’!

LATEST NEWS noted on Telegraph online in this posted at 2:17 pm under headline (my emphases),

Brexit Essentials: how a no-deal Brexit has come back from the dead – ‘If there’s one thing we do know about Parliament it’s that it really doesn’t like the idea of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. MPs have voted against it on three separate occasions. None of those was legally-binding, but it did seem that last week MPs really had killed the idea off – they would force Theresa May to get a long Brexit extension or, at worst, back her deal, leaving ‘no-deal’ dead and buried.’

‘Yet now, ‘no-deal’ is hauling itself out of the grave and stalking the House of Commons once again. How has that happened? The answer lies within the Conservative Party.

‘Time and again, the PM has shown that she will choose party unity over anything else. Theresa just does not want to be the Prime Minister who split the Conservative Party for good. So this week, even though there was no sign of MPs backing her deal at the third time of asking, and a long delay to Brexit seemed to be the only option left, she caved to her party’s demands and asked for only a short extension.

‘Theresa probably didn’t even want a long extension. It was a useful tool to scare her backbenchers into supporting her. But it looks like the scare she gave them was too good, and instead of meekly surrendering, her MPs have come out swinging…’

This claim is closely (ie. not by direct, literal reference) related to what Veronika West prophesied on 8th January and reiterated last Friday, 15th March about a death being reversed. A copy of each follows for ease of reference. (Introducing the latter I observe it makes “an exceptional word to test in the near future as to its accuracy!”): Continue reading

Jesus Christ’s teaching: Foundation for Life — Fellowship of the Secret

Here my namesake covers verses that often nudge me because not only do they follow Jesus’ instruction not to judge one another and point the finger, but also the version at Matthew 7:21-27 brings a stern admonition that’s personally pertinent: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord’, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, “I never knew you, depart from Me you who practise lawlessness!”

Here’s what Richard has to say n the Lucan version:

“But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when…

Chris Bennett on Ezekiel 34 & 37 – bad shepherds and renewal of the Church

I thank the Lord and UK Prophetic Words for bringing this from Chris Bennett to my attention as I don’t recall anyone teaching on Ezekiel 34 since 25 years ago! It is very helpful to those who, like me, have been deeply concerned with these issues over the past month, and may answer our concerns and queries:

‘The Lord just revealed something to me. I don’t think for one moment I’m the only one hearing this, but this is the confirmation of what’s been brewing in me for several days.

‘The Lord is saying that NOW is that Ezekiel 34 moment – the exposing of the bad shepherds. Those who have led their flock through the wide, easy gate; who have omitted so much from the gospel and from the salvation experience.

‘Those who have suppressed and grieved Holy Spirit, forcing Him to be more a spectator than contributor in their services. Those who, in Ezekiel’s own words, have grown fat without feeding the flock, or who have denied healing to the sick, succour to the poor, and justice to widows and orphans.

‘The Lord is exposing and deposing such shepherds – “THEY SHALL FALL!”, says the Lord, BECAUSE THEY DISHONOUR MY NAME AND MY PEOPLE!! THEY FOLLOW THEIR OWN SINFUL PATH WHILE DESTROYING THOSE IN THE FLOCK WHO DO THE SAME THING! HYPOCRITES!!! THEY DO NOT PREACH MY GOSPEL NOR MY SALVATION, RATHER, THEY LEAD MY PEOPLE ASTRAY AND THEN CAST THEM ASIDE IN FAVOUR OF THEIR OWN EVIL SCHEMES !!!”, says the Lord.

‘Then the Lord showed me a wonderful Ezekiel 37 moment of prophesying to the bones then prophesying to the breath. He showed me the Valley of Dry Bones – the bones coming together. He told me to prophesy over these bones and, as I did so, the Lord showed me the army of the Lord here on earth, the church, coming together in unity once again. As I watched them, the Lord commanded me to prophesy to the breath, as in Ezekiel 37, “Command the breath, their voice, to return!” As I did so, I heard the sound of a roar coming from the resurrected army – a roar of authority and of the power of the Lord.

‘Having watched the shepherds exposed and the dry bones resurrected, the Lord spoke once again:

“I WILL SHAKE MY CHURCH FIRST TO EXPOSE THE BAD AND TO THEN BUILD UP THE GOOD. IT IS THE BEGINNING OF SEPARATING WHEAT AND TARES, AND THE BEGINNING OF JUDGEMENT, FOR DOES MY WORD NOT SAY THAT JUDGEMENT SHALL BEGIN WITH MY CHURCH?”

‘As I thought about this, the Lord continued,

“I SHALL BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO MY CHURCH, MY PEOPLE. MY CHURCH, MY BRIDE, SHALL RETURN TO MY GOSPEL INCLUDING FAITH, REPENTANCE, SALVATION, AND DISCIPLING, FOLLOWED BY THE RESTORATION OF ALL THE GIFTS OF MY SPIRIT. THEN FAITH, LOVE, SIGNS AND WONDERS SHALL BE THE HALLMARK OF MY PEOPLE.”

‘I felt the Lord had finished speaking, but He gave me a final question for all of us – When pastors start to fall, who will shepherd their flock? In this coming season, ‘all that can be shaken’ includes pastors being exposed and falling. Who will shepherd the flock then?

‘I heard the words, “The House Church movement will return just like the first church, 2000 years ago!” There is a hunger for this yet a rejection of the ‘church as usual’ mentality that pervades the body today. It’s the days of personal church meetings – small groups gathering for fellowship, often a meal, a time of teaching and discipling, with occasional larger group meetings when we all get together in celebration. I see much joy, great faith building, and miracles being the order of the day – every day! And evangelism will be rampant – church will be a lifestyle, no longer a social scene, but our way of life IN JESUS!!

‘HALLELUJAH !!!!’

Chris Bennett, 23rd February

RB Footnotes:
  1. About 25 years ago the Lord pointed me to Ezekiel 34 and I thought it may relate to my cell-group leadership’s inability to help me with my ‘New Age’ background. However, my godly pastor Barry Kirk at Tilehurst Free Church (Baptist) kindly encouraged me to seek deeper ministry help.  And so I was intrigued to learn that a recent Ellel Ministries ‘Battle for the Mind’ conference had specifically covered Ezekiel 34!
  2. Note carefully what Chris brings from the Lord on ‘Wheat and Tares’, which we’ve already covered this year – but much more on that in my next, very special post!!

An Ideal Parliament

This post bridging ‘the Pond’ brings an informative, brief discussion that well serves my coverage (GPS#12) of the historical background to the internationally famed document limiting a sovereign’s ‘divine rights’, as well as its proposed Spiritual Magna Carta

All Along the Watchtower

The Westminster Parliament appears to be tearing itself apart. The current turmoil resembles the time before party whips came to play the role they do today. In the old days, parties were not stable: a leader could not depend on the votes of other MPs and Lords as a matter of course. Much of the time, a member of the legislature had to be persuaded or cajoled into voting in favour of a proposal.

NEO ran a post at his blog, yesterday, commemorating George Washington. The post is well worth a read. In particular, I was struck by George Washington’s dislike for political parties (especially on the basis of geographical divisions). He knew history well, and he was a true patriot. He desired that the people would be united and that faction would not lead to tyranny. Struggles, he contended, can lead to people placing their faith in one man:…
