"Give them a corrupt House of Lords,
give them a venal House of Commons,
give them a tyrannical Prince,
give them a truckling court,
and let me have but an unfettered press.
I will defy them to encroach a hair’s breadth
upon the liberties of England."

Richard Brinsley Sheridan
(1751-1816) Irish playwright and Whig statesman
Speech in the House of Commons, 6 February 1810
