Winston Churchill, Tony Benn and New Labour government

Churchill on socialism:

There can be no doubt that socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the abject worship of the state. … A free Parliament is odious to the socialist doctrinaire.

Benn on New Labour in power:

In short parliamentary democracy and cabinet government have been quietly abandoned in favour of a King and his courtiers, sustained by ministers and MPs who are expected to fall into line or get the chop, almost as if we have a President without even a House of Representatives to keep him in check.
