The English people believes itself to be free; it is gravely mistaken; it is free only during the election of Members of Parliament; as soon as the Members are elected, the people is enslaved; it is nothing.
In the brief moments of its freedom, the English people makes such a use of that freedom that it deserves to lose it.
