Churchill knew what the Tories are like!


In 1906 Winston Churchill characterised the Conservative Party thus:

“…a party of vested interests, banded together in a formidable confederation, corruption at home, aggression to cover it up abroad, the trickery of tariff juggles, the tyranny of a party machine; sentiment by the bucketful, patriotism by the imperial pint, the open hand at the public exchequer, the open-door at the public house, dear food for the million, cheap labour for the millionaire”

Winston Churchill, 1906

Churchill’s analysis of the Tory Party (he was a Liberal at this time) has surely stood the test of time!?

One response to “Churchill knew what the Tories are like!
