Description

Excerpt from Toryism: A Political Dialogue To criticise leaders, we may remember of Disraeli, whom we now reverently approve as the inspired fount of Tory wisdom, that a distinguished statesman recalled in my presence an excited division in the House of Commons in which nine out of ten of the great man's supporters were whispering: We shall do no good while he leads us. And we may remember of Sir Henry Campbell Bannerman, that a week before he took office it is extremely doubtful whether he securely counted upon Mr. Asquith, Lord Haldane, or Sir Edward Grey. And we may re member that Mr. Borden, the power ful leader of Canadian Conservatism, underwent, in the long days of ad versity, a crisis even more acute under the goad of ardent hopes so often disappointed.
