'Parliament is not a Congress of Ambassadors from different and hostile interests ... [It] is a deliberative Assembly of one Nation with one Interest. You choose a Member indeed; but when you have chosen him, he is not Member of Bristol, but he is a Member of Parliament.'
— Edmund Burke (1774) on parliamentary democracy
