Quote: Aneurin Bevan (1897 - 1960)

“Why should I question the monkey when I can question the organ grinder.”

Bevan's comment was made in the House of Commons whilst questioning the Foreign Minister, Selwyn Lloyd, during the Suez Crisis in 1956, when he saw the Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden enter the House.
