Civilisation cannot survive if it rests on a propertyless proletariat.
Ernest Bevin 18/08/1941
Personally I think that private property has a right to be defended. Our civilisation is built up on property, and can only be defended by private property.
Winston Churchill 11/08/1947
Government has no other end than the preservation of property.
John Locke 1690
I am much nearer to creating one nation than Labour will ever be. Socialism is two nations. The privileged rulers, and everyone else. And it always gets to that. What I am desperately trying to do is create one nation with everyone being a man of property, or having the opportunity to be a man of property.
Margaret Thatcher 27/02/1983
