Today's Truth

"Corruptissima re publica plurimae leges. (The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.)"

Cornelius Tacitus - (55-117 A.D.)
Senator and a historian of the Roman Empire.

Source: Annales (1st century A.D.)

Worth bearing in mind when one considers the plethora of new laws enacted by the New Labour government since 1997.
