On political parties – Benjamin Disraeli

In his Manchester speech of 1872, former U.K. Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli expressed thus his opinion about political parties –

“I look upon Parliamentary government as the noblest government in the world. But without the discipline of political connection, animated by the principle of private honour, I feel certain that a popular assembly would sink before the power or the corruption of the minister.”

Quoted in my 1999 law thesis ‘The Constituitonal Implications of Party Organisation and Party Finance’
