"I think they've [Labour Government] made the biggest financial mess that any government's ever made in this country for a very long time, and Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them. They then start to nationalise everything, and people just do not like more and more nationalisation, and they're now trying to control everything by other means. They're progressively reducing the choice available to ordinary people. "

Natural law (gravity, physics, fiscal law, etc.) exceeds all carnal man's major errors and minor foibles. Socialism, Keynesian economics and other anti-natural law phenomena, by their very nature at law, are ultimately disastrous.
