Whatever we do in the UK is a fudge.
Take privatisation, supposedly to introduce competition but how can there be competition when there is only one operator.
Then re-nationalisation supposedly for profits to be reinvested, but are they reinvested or are they creamed off by the Government of the day.
Pre-privatisation many of the nationalised industries were deprived of much need investment and investment was used on a political basis.
Theoretically nationalisation should be good for the majority, but if it is not applied effectively on a practical basis it will not be good for the majority.
It is obvious isn’t it? We don’t need competition we need cooperation.
People work better in teams with a common aim. We don’t need them arbitrarily divided into profit-making groups. We want national services that are fairly priced and not geared to generate profit for rich people but to provide services for us.
All this drive to privatisation and competition is doing is putting money in the pockets of the rich.
We privatise universities and schools and suddenly the Vice Chancellors and SuperHeads are on vast salaries.
We privatise healthcare and the costs go through the roof as profits are creamed off.
We privatise the railways and fares go through the roof as profits are creamed off.
We privatise energy and the coasts soar.
We privatise the Post Office and the cost of a stamp goes through the ceiling.
We privatise water and our bills shoot up.
When will we learn?…
