Conservative Whips Office

Famous quotes containing the words conservative, whips and/or office:

    Growing older, I have lost the need to be political, which means, in this country, the need to be left. I am driven into grudging toleration of the Conservative Party because it is the party of non-politics, of resistance to politics.
    Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)

    Wind rushes
    over the dunes,
    and the coarse, salt-crusted grass
    answers.
    Heu,
    it whips round my ankles!
    Hilda Doolittle (1886–1961)

    I had many problems in my conduct of the office being contrasted with President Kennedy’s conduct in the office, with my manner of dealing with things and his manner, with my accent and his accent, with my background and his background. He was a great public hero, and anything I did that someone didn’t approve of, they would always feel that President Kennedy wouldn’t have done that.
    Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–1973)
