Politicians Don’t Change

This comes from a pamphlet by MP Philip Snowden quoting a treasury official, months before the outbreak of war in 1914:

“We are in the hands of an organisation of crooks. They are politicians, generals, manufacturers of armaments and journalists. All of them are anxious for unlimited expenditure, and go on inventing scares  to terrify the public and to terrify ministers of the crown.”
