The Colony of Unrequited Dreams - Wayne Johnston

"And we believe a greater pack of knaves does not exist than that which composes the House of Assembly for the Colony. Take them for all in all, from the Speaker downwards, we do not suppose that a greater set of low-life and lawless scoundrels as Public men can be found under the canopy of heaven.

 

— from “The Newfoundland Royal Gazette,” 1834, as quoted in D. W. Prowse, A History of Newfoundland"
