“In the light of history it will ever be regarded as a curious and temporary aberration of the human mind that great nations should elect a government to do a job and should then elect an opposition to stop them doing it.

“Curious to posterity will appear the principle of creating at the same time a government to do the nation’s work and an opposition to frustrate it. . . . Yet this extraordinary harlequinade, in which nothing serious, in terms of the modern mind, is ever done, and little serious is even discussed, is today represented as the only means of preserving the liberties of the people.”
