Cromwellian nightmares

What kind of Parliament are we going to get after the next election? The Telegraph’s Charles Moore reminds us Oliver Cromwell promised to clean up Parliament too but his “Assembly of Saints” turned out to be creatures of the army.
A serious political thinker I spoke to last week said he feared our 'Manure' Parliament would be followed by a Commons even more in the grip of its leaders and whips. We have to hope that David Cameron's big constitutional speech today points towards a different future.
