Best Political Quote Ever

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 the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome will become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.
    — Cicero, 55 BC . . .

From London: "So, evidently we've learned sweet bugger all over the past 2,070 years?"

I guess "sweet bugger all" is a pithy Britishism for "absolutely nothing at all".
