Oswald Mosley
A prophet or an achiever must never mind an occasional absurdity; it is an occupational risk.
Mosley quotes
Tom Mosley is a cad and a wrong 'un and they will find it out.
Mosley
No rising star in the political firmament ever shone more brightly than Oswald Mosley, none promised more surely to soar to the heavens and none fell to earth with so deadening a thud. Never were such rich talents so wretchedly squandered. Never did success turn to failure so inscrutably.




Mosley Oswald quotes
[Fascism] was an explosion against intolerable conditions, against remediable wrongs which the old world failed to remedy. It was a movement to secure national renaissance by people who felt themselves threatened with decline into decadence and death and were determined to live, and live greatly.
Mosley Oswald
We have lost the good old British spirit. Instead we have American journalism and black-shirted buffoons making a cheap imitation of ice-cream sellers.
Oswald Mosley quotes
Living financially and economically on American charity, selling up the house to the Yanks when he won't pay any more charity out. Are you content to be occupied and protected by American aeroplanes? Are you content to be in the position of an old women, jipped by her young relations? You who were the greatest power on earth fifty years ago, and still can be! Why do I say, 'you still can be'? Because my friends I know you, I know the British people. I know that twice in my lifetime in the world war I fought in, in the world war the younger men fought in. We the British have put our effort, our energy of valor, of heroism, unequalled in the history of mankind.
Oswald Mosley
Did he not appear to you to be a public man of no little courage, no little candour and no little ability.
Mosley Oswald quotes
Together in Britain we have lit a flame that the ages shall not extinguish. Guard that sacred flame my brother Blackshirts until it illuminates Britain and lights again the Paths of Mankind.
Mosley
A fight between several parties of the British people: Nothing of the kind! A fight between two or three big money combines, that and nothing else. Without the weight of money behind the party machines, in an electoral battle today determined purely by principle and by the number of active workers...British Union could fight and beat today the old parties over the whole electoral field. But you know and I know, the battle is nothing of the kind. The battle is between big money combines who spend a thousand pounds or more on every constituency they fight. Or when they speak democracy, they don't mean government by the people...they mean financial democracy, in which money counts and nothing but money.
Mosley Oswald
The greatest comet of British politics in the twentieth century...an orator of the highest rank. He produced, almost unaided, a programme of economic reconstruction which surpassed anything offered by Lloyd George or, in the United States, by F. D. Roosevelt...He has continued fertile in ideas...A superb political thinker, the best of our age.
Oswald Mosley
Great men of action never mind on occasion being ridiculous; in a sense it is part of their job.




Oswald Mosley quotes
He is too 'logical' and if he had his way would attempt to presently 'Russianize'...our government.
Oswald Mosley
...the old axiom that 'all power corrupts' has doubtful validity, because it derives from our neglect of Plato's advice to find men carfully and train them by methods which make them fit for heroes.
Mosley quotes
I am not, and never have been, a man of the right. My position was on the left and is now in the centre of politics.
