Malcolm Muggeridge (1903-90), British broadcaster, had little patience with politicians and once admitted that he had voted only once in his life.

"On that occasion," said he, "I simply had to. There was one candidate who had been committed to an asylum and upon his discharge was issued a Certificate of Sanity.

"Well, how could I resist? What politician anywhere has an actual medical report that he is sane? I simply had to support him."
