Trying to cure leukemia with leeches

No theory of government was ever given a fairer test or a more prolonged experiment in a democratic country than democratic socialism received in Britain. Yet it was a miserable failure in every respect...To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukemia with leeches.
Margaret Thatcher, The Downing Street Years (HarperCollins, 1993)
