All those represented were going to get some of their demands met but they could not have everything they desired. The Long Parliament reconvened for one purpose and one purpose only, to call a new election. The new Convention Parliament met and was tasked with inviting King Charles 11 to return. And to pay off Cromwell’s army, this to remove the threat of another armed rebellion, among other things. Monck turned over his Coldstream Guards to the service of the soverign so that there wasn’t a loose army kicking around. The King then put Monck in charge of the Coldstream Guards. So the General still held the wip hand. This discouraged anyone from making more trouble, including the King.
Our democratic system must prevail
Most of the common folk in the Nation were overjoyed that peace had returned and the King and Parliament had pledged to cooperate. This moment in time is called Restoration [ 1660 ] in English history and marks the beginning of steady progress towards what is called the UK of to-day. This Constitutional Monarchy has been the most successful form of government in the world for 350 years and is in place in many countries including Canada, at least for now. Ontario has had this type of Government for over 140 years but we don’t have it any more thanks to David Onley. This Province is now in the hands of an illegitimate 6 man Junta which IS UNACCEPTABLE TO ME AND A GREAT MANY OTHER ONTARIANS.
I am floored at the number of visits to my post, ” open letter to the Queen “, which only went up a few days ago
Democracy MUST be brought back by legitimate means. The Legislature must be recalled immediately by the Queen appointing a new Lieutenant Governor. Having the 100 elected MPPs suggest candidates for the position L. G. to Queen Elizabeth makes the process LEGITIMATE. In addition having the 3 Parties cooperate to resolve this huge Constitutional issue makes it a necessity to work together. This will break up the Liberal and PC Party machines once and for all and return the Legislature to the control of the people throught their individual MPPs. The biggest issue facing Ontario is a broken electrical system. The nukies have destroyed the Province’s economy. Now is the opportune moment for MPPs to seize control of the KW system and make it the servant of Ontarians rather than another private sector instrument of servitude.
There are a number of spending scandals, the investigation of which McGuinty attempted to snuff out by proroguing the legislature. I suspect there are spending scandals involving our electrical system too which are connected to the Liberal and PC Party machines. I would guess that half the cost of a KW to-day relates to insiders illegally lining their pockets. This is another matter for the new sitting of the Legislative Assembly OF THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE to investigate. I await the Queen’s consideration of this grave matter. Let us harvest this outpouring of concern and turn it into concrete action, namely the recreation of a new electrical energy utility.
For want of a name, may I suggest the, ” new ONTARIO HYDRO”. The original O H stood Ontarians in good stead for 75 years until it was seized by the nukies as a means of pursuing their experiments with nuclear at our expense. For the last 40 years the nukies running our KW system have never placed generating reliable / affordable / clean electricity high on the need-to-do list. The system is now 6 feet under, time for the Legislature to take charge and my offer to help stands. But first we have to get the MPPs back to work.
