- 1 Walker (like F. W. S. Craig in his compilations of election results for Great Britain) classifies Whig, Radical and similar candidates as Liberals from 1832. The name Liberal was gradually adopted as a description for the Whigs and politicians allied with them, before the formal creation of the Liberal Party shortly after the 1859 general election.

Famous quotes containing the words members of, parliament and/or members:
“The members of a body-politic call it the state when it is passive, the sovereign when it is active, and a power when they compare it with others of its kind. Collectively they use the title people, and they refer to one another individually as citizens when speaking of their participation in the authority of the sovereign, and as subjects when speaking of their subordination to the laws of the state.”
—Jean-Jacques Rousseau (17121778)
“He felt that it would be dull times in Dublin, when they should have no usurping government to abuse, no Saxon Parliament to upbraid, no English laws to ridicule, and no Established Church to curse.”
—Anthony Trollope (18151882)
“A multitude of little superfluous precautions engender here a population of deputies and sub-officials, each of whom acquits himself with an air of importance and a rigorous precision, which seemed to say, though everything is done with much silence, Make way, I am one of the members of the grand machine of state.”
—Marquis De Custine (17901857)
