There is a Ringo quote all over the internet: Everything government touches turns to crap. Does anyone know the origins of this quote?

Ringo was the origin, probably. Heheh, sorry, I don't actually know.

For anyone interested, I found the source of the quote:

 

“They can’t make anything work. Buses, trains. None of them work,” Ringo told Beatles biographer Hunter Davies in 1967. “Everything the Government does turns to crap, not gold"

The following people thank John for this post:
