He thinks, if I understand him rightly, that we ought either to leave the representative system such as it is, or to make it perfectly symmetrical. I think, Sir, that the Ministers would have acted unwisely if they had taken either course. Their principle is plain, rational, and consistent. It is this, to admit the middle class to a latge and direct share in the representation, without any violent shock to the institutions of our country...The government has, in my opinion, done all that was necessary for the removal of a great practical evil, and no more than the necessary."
