Quote of the Week: Enoch Powell, “The Devil Was Sick, The Devil a Monk Would Be.”

Enoch Powell

The trouble about the Conservative Party is that nobody can still suppose there will be any resemblance between what they say before an election and what they do afterwards if they win it […] Without exception, whatever happened, they put their cars and their chauffeurs, their salaries and their positions before their principles and their promises […] What is wrong with the Conservative Party today is that it is morally bankrupt.

▪ Enoch Powell, “The Devil Was Sick, The Devil a Monk Would Be” Daily Mail (4 October 1976) reprinted in Reflections of a Statesman – The Writings and Speeches of Enoch Powell (Bellew, 1991) extracts from pages 460 through to 461.
