These words of wisdom were sent to me today by my friend, Rosie Howes:
"The Budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled and assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest [we] become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance'
Cicero, 55 BC"
QED. So is there really nothing new under the sun?
