This follows from Mr Hardern's scheme to make every British citizen a member of the House of Lords. A worrying new development is that he has put himself forward as "the first Lord Protector - office to expire on 31 December 1999".
The last Lord Protector I can think of in this country was Oliver Cromwell, who executed King Charles I and closed the House of Commons in order to impose his own Parliament, among other things.
As for Mr Hardern's push for power, I can only quote Oliver Cromwell back at him: "In the name of God - go!"Reuse content
