How True

One of the blogs I read, although not on my blog list, is that of Nadine Dorries - she may be a Conservative, but she is a blonde and not dumb either! But, again, I digress.........

Having now stopped fantasising and thereby returning to the matter in question, Nadine relates how she had dinner with Lord and Lady Rothschild, at which Lynn Forester - aka
Lady Lynn Forester De Rothschild - was the speaker.

One story Nadine quotes - told by Lynn Forester - struck a chord:

An immigrant who had arrived in the US with nothing, he had worked hard and saved hard and put his two kids through college who were both doing incredibly well.

Lynn asked him would he, instead of having had to work so hard to elevate his family, have preferred help from the State?

The man replied, “No, for two reasons. The first is that the state doesn’t know what I want and the second is what the state gives me the state can take away”. (my emphasis)

Therein lies the death-knell for socialism!
