Winston Churchill, speech to the House of Commons (February 22, 1933):
These well-meaning gentlemen of the British Broadcasting Corporation have
absolutely no qualifications and no claim to represent British public opinion.
They have no right to say that they voice the opinions of English or British
people whatever. If anyone can do that it is His Majesty's Government; and there
may be two opinions about that. It would be far better to have sharply contrasted
views in succession, in alternation, than to have this copious stream of pontifical,
anonymous mugwumpery with which we have been dosed so long.
