Reading Experience:

Evidence:

Lord Stanley to John Wilson Croker, 22 March 1851: 'There is at the moment an utter break up of all parties, except the Protectionists, who are, I hope, notwithstanding their recent disappointment, gradually consolidating themselves [...] If I can consolidate with them the now awakened spirit of Protestantism, and at the same time can keep the latter within reasonable bounds, I can go to the country with a strong war-cry, with which, indeed, the Times furnished me the other day, "Protestantism, Protection, and down with the Income Tax."'
