"While we are throwing sayings about - "Power corrupts - absolute power corrupts absolutely"."

Lord Acton: "All power tends to corrupt, absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely."

The old boy was an example of the way the British used to be - despite being a Roman Catholic (at a time when the Pope had just ruled that democracy, science and progress were evil) he was a social progressive who was appalled by over-reaching politicians. We need people like him today.
