The promise that privatisation would bring lower prices and a better service is as false with rail as with water, energy and soon the post.
You know it makes sense.
This isn’t just about energy prices. Look at the scandals surrounding G4S, Serco and Atos. Some things should not be privatised.
I could not agree with anything more.
Profiteering based on the sale of a commodity which is essential to life and basic human comfort is outrageous. Nationalisation would end this.

It wasn’t completely Thatcher - she famously would not privatise water, railways or the Royal Mail. Major and Blair did a lot of the weird other sell offs and Vince Cable the Lib Dem flogged the post off at half price!! And all blamed Thatcher…….
Its taken forty years for Thatcher's Privatisation policies to fall down. And it could have been a lot sooner, with the right type of Labour Party.
