"Many sixties leftists chose to enter the law rather than politics, precisely because they realised that these conventions were a limitless mine, into which they could dig for excuses to push through radical social change. They could never have got these measures past the electorate." - Peter Hitchens.
"I'm fascinated by politics but I've lived 26 years in politics - more than that because I've always been interested. But, you know, you can change the world through the law too and that's the path I've chosen" - Cherie Blair.
