That the poor were poorer…

What the honorable member is saying is that he would rather that the poor were poorer, provided that the rich were less rich… So long as the gap is smaller, they would rather have the poor poorer. You do not create wealth and opportunity that way. You do not create a property-owning democracy that way.

Margaret Thatcher
