This is an adjunct to the main discussion, but I came across a reader's letter in Metro the other day which I feel summed up the situation rather well.

"Oliver Cromwell told the Rump Parliament in 1653: '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 become the greatest grievance ... I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place; go, get you out! Ye venal slaves be gone!'

How times change."
