A champagne socialist is someone who, while possessed of great riches, supports socialist policies which have the aim of denying prosperity to other members of the community. These hypocrites, common in the Labour Party and elsewhere in the United Kingdom, are similar to limousine liberals in the United States. The term "champagne socialist" derives from a combination of "socialist" and "champagne", an expensive, bubbly wine typically enjoyed by the rich.
