Description

Excerpt from The Letters of Lord St. Vincent, Vol. 1 The policy of Cabinets is necessarily influenced by the state of political parties. Governments commanding a strong majority can formulate a strong policy both at home and abroad; but with a small majority will be reflected a corre spondingly small inclination to embark upon contentious measures. Unenviable, however, are those called upon in times of grave national danger, commanding no majority, leading no party, tolerated rather than supported, their tenure of Office limited till such time as one or other of the political parties shall again bid for power. Few statesmen in such circumstances have added to their reputations; the Addington Ministry affords no exception.
