Privatisation is Theft

Every privatisation of public services represents theft and a great loss to our nation. Dr. Cable and his mates arrogantly asserted that last year’s privatisation of Royal Mail was good for Britain; the facts speak otherwise.

Cable and co have been very quiet over the past few months. When the shares were first traded they rocketed from 330p each to over 450p. Now, more than three months later they peaked at 650p, a massive rise of 86% on the original price! The loss to us, mere tax payers, is £2.8 billion which is six times what the government expects to get from the iniquitous bedroom tax. The silence from ministers is deafening. Two banks which facilitated the sell-off received £16 million. For Royal Mail customers post privatisation price increases are already taking place and the chief executive wants a pay deal of £1.5 million. Who is the more complacent, government ministers or us for allowing them to steal from us on such a grand scale?

The EU has realised that Brexit is no game; it is the serious desire of the British population. Countries are panicking about the prospect of no-deal, as it will hurt economies in ways they refused to accept. Britain has the upper hand. Get Brexit done!

Pandemic planning in Britain is a Mess. Pandemic planning is split between the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the National Covid Response Centre and the Covid19 Taskforce.
Four separate IT systems are used (Synergy, CTAS, SGSS and HP Zone), meaning data is lost.

Too many people have died through government inaction, carelessness & slavish adherence to private companies & organisations. Billions have been thrown at private companies, often with Tory party connections, despite repeated failures across the board.

Internationalism meant that they shared their information with the world and are participating in an international vaccine programme. Not vaccine nationalism USA style.

The main lessons to be learned from the socialist countries were that they not only acted upon the science but had built and used a strong public sector. They were also able to switch manufacturing to the making of PPE to meet their own needs.
