 Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Palmerston never was a Whig, still less a Radical: he was a statesman of the old English aristocratic type, liberal in his sentiments, favourable to the march of progress, but entirely opposed to the claims of democratic government.
Palmerston was no orator; his language was unstudied, and his delivery somewhat embarrassed, but he generally found words to say the right thing at the right time and to address the House of Commons in the language best adapted to the capacity and the temper of his audience.
Palmerston conceived and executed the plan of a quadruple alliance of the constitutional states of the West to serve as a counterpoise to the northern alliance.
