The Party System and the Corruption of Parliament

 

"The Party System does not consist, as some suppose, of two parties (or three - Editor), but of ONE. If there were two real parties there could be no system... In the presence of this inner obstacle a VOTE becomes about as valuable as a railway ticket when there is a permanent block on the line"

A Short History of England. G.K. Chesterton.

THE PARTY SYSTEM

The Party System

 

"It is the Parliamentary majority which has the potential for tyranny. The thing that the Courts cannot protect you against is Parliament - the traditional protector of our liberties. But Parliament is constantly making mistakes and could in theory become the most oppressive instrument in the world"

Lord Hailsham, former Lord Chancellor. Sunday Times 19 July 1970.

"The will-to-power operating under a pure democratic disguise has finished off its masterpiece so well that the object's sense of freedom is actually flattered by the most thorough-going enslavement that has ever existed"

Oswald Spengler, "Decline of the West" p461 Complete Volume Edition. Allen & Unwin.
