Doc John BS: How many socialists are there here? (178* d) RE: BS: How many socialists are there here? 01 Apr 08

Well if you've ready my postings on the 'Lights Out' thread, you'll know you can add me to the list.
Stigwaerd, I agree with much you say but there may have been some kind of balance in the UK before Thatcher and Blair her Heir. In my view some things should be run on socialist, nationalised (dirty word now) or is a better word 'mutual' manner: health, as you mentioned, but then there are railways, postal service, water, electricity ... services we all need. The rot set in when these items were privatised and are now run for profit rather than use. Did anyone hear of anything so silly as a private prison? The hospitals are now famously dirty because the cleaning is no longer done 'in house' but given to the lowest bidding private company, who then proceeds to cut corners. OK, let market forces (= law of the jungle) operate with burgers and jeans but not with essential services. However have you noticed when market forces work against the government's business friends (eg Lloyds), suddenly they don't like these forces anymore?
