In 1976 Margaret Thatcher sat down to an interview for Thames TV, during which she said "...and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They [socialists] always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them."
I use this paraphrase every now and again, when my Socialist brother is in ear-shot!
"The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money."I have a great respect for Lady Thatcher, and I do wonder what she must be thinking has happened to the Party which she led for many years. It seems to have gone off the rails.
