Quotations

"The new mainly left wing habit of lying while calling other people's normal political language lies is the most dangerous development in politics at the moment.It's a genuinely Orwellian attempt to gain control of 'truth' for political purposes. Nothing, not newfound Russian nuclear superiority, not Chinese military expansion, nothing threatens liberal democracy as seriously." Peter Risdon

"A Parliament is nothing less than a big meeting of more or less idle people." Walter Bagehot. (This is exactly what the British parliament should be, but no longer is. Hence the decline in the importance of and respect for Parliament.)



"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." Thomas Edison

"I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it." Anonymous

“When the mind becomes conscious of itself as thought it simultaneously becomes conscious of itself as action. Thought and action, truth and freedom (‘ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free’) are inseparable, and are in fact correlative aspects of an indivisible reality. Hence they became simultaneously explicit in the mind’s process of self-discovery.” R. G. Collingwood
