“There is no act of treachery, or meanness, of which a political party is not capable; for in politics there is no honour.”

Quotation from the novel Vivian Grey by Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881), who was Prime Minister of Britain in 1868 and 1874-80


The novel was published in 1826 and 1827. That was then and this is now… Mais plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

For our take on the current situation as regards political parties, check out our post “Partitocracy v. Democracy” below.
