You won't see me coming....
Most Britons want increased taxes on the rich, public ownership of rail and other utilities, and better workers’ rights…
The boy's done good, straight from uni, never done a proper job, south shite, writes bollocks and gets paid for it. The lefty fifth formers are in charge!
If they really looked I think they would find that most Britons want out of the EU and the climate change act for starters. Doing the first would remove the drain of EU payments and reduce the deficit. The second should remove the green taxes that are crippling industry and heading the country towards blackouts in the winter when the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining.
BunnyAs Mr Anonymous said at 09:06 he has never had a proper job, can we put them on an island and lay bets on how long it would last until they resorted to cannibalism.
Now I'm far from being a whinging lefty trot, but I think the privatisation of the public utilities, has been an abject failure. I do think there's a place for nationalisation of water, gas, electric and to certain extent the railways.. OK not so much for the likes of British Leyland, ship building and the steel works. Coal, I'm not really too sure, but on balance, yes probably coal too.Yes, nationalised industries weren't perfect, but the privatisation of those industries for privatisations sake hasn't worked either.
To paraphrase Voltaire, "Si ce petit garçon n'existait pas, il faudrait l'inventer".In comparison, even a complete and utter retard appears intelligent and rational.
" The second should remove the green taxes that are crippling industry and heading the country towards blackouts in the winter when the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining."We are doomed there, I suspect. "...but I think the privatisation of the public utilities, has been an abject failure. "Really?! I get far, far better service from my phone supplier, gas supplier, and yes, even my train company than I ever did before!
Joolz, if you don't mind me asking, how old are you? If you're under 50, you've never had a public utilities supplier, as it was all privatised about 30 years ago.Also once the utilities were privatised, do you think that they sacked all those lazy useless telecom and gas engineers and brought in a load of highly skilled conscientious ones or something?Better service you say? In what way? Before privatisation, we had gas showrooms where you could speak to someone, pay your bill, and buy a cooker/gas fire etc. Same with the electric and phone. Please, explain to me how speaking to some call centre in Bangalore is "Far, far better service"?I do a lot of walking on the moors. When I was a kid, there used to be gangs of workers working on all the culverts for the local water board (as it was known then). They'd clear the culverts of weeds, and point all the stonework etc. It was a job like painting the Forth Bridge, once they finished, they started again. Now, they don't maintain the infrastructure, it makes better sense to just not bother paying all those wages, and pay dividends to German shareholders instead. The only time there's any work done is after catastrophic failure, and they are forced to by law. The replacement of the old cast iron pipes with blue plastic one being a classic example. Yet this state of affairs is better than it was before?I think someone's letting their political ideology get in the way of facts here..
