OrE the Democracy

You choose a member indeed; but when you have chosen him, he is not member of Bristol, but he is a member of parliament.  
.. Your representative owes you, not his industry only, but his judgment; and he betrays, instead of serving you, if he sacrifices it to your opinion.

 Edmund Burke, Speech to the Electors of Bristol
