Britain needs Socialism now more than ever before

Tory policies have caused Britain  to run aground. Thatcherite policies and values have now backed Britain  into a cul-de-sac. There is no route forward any longer and therefore  no reason to cling to the values of Thatcherism. Britain  has no income and longer is is also bankrupt of ideas. Now the only course of action available to the Tories  is to raise levels of government  income from  taxation. This was inevitable  as a result of privatisation  of Britain’s  assets. Recent Tory  governments  have relied upon borrowing  as a way of shoring up the facade that everything  was under control. Then along came Liz Truss who tore down the mirrors to reveal the true horror  show that the Tories  had created. Truss even managed to make matters worse and that takes some doing.

Starmer threatens the UK Energy Market suggesting a Publicly Owned Energy Provider

Sir Kier Starmer sent a strong message to the UK Energy Providers  with an underlying threat made at the Labour Party Conference yesterday. If Labour gets elected it will set up a new publicly owned Energy Provider that will be in direct competition  with the current UK Energy Providers. However it will be run for the benefit of the public and not as a privatised enterprise.  This was initially  my idea that I provided to the Labour Party on 19th October 2017. See my post http://havemysay.me.uk/competition-is-the-way-forward-for-the-public-ownership-of-gas-and-electricity-in-britain

Third World Britain: a Tory accomplishment all done on their watch

During 12 years of Tory management  they have finally  managed  to turn Britain  into a Third World Country.  This is Third World Britain. The Tories  have turned Britain into a third world country: an all done on their watch. The Tories have turned Britain into a Country where: people could die of hypothermia in the coming winter months, where people cannot find rental accommodation, where students cannot find affordable  rents or suitable digs, where people are unable to find homes to rent and cannot afford to mortgages to buy homes. Britain  is a country  where people can no longer get a dentist, see a doctor or get timely health care. More and more people  are relying on food banks. People have to make choices  between feeding their families and keeping pets. People are having to make tough choices about heating their homes or eating food. People are seeing their businesses going down. People are being laid off due to the uncertainty that businesses are becoming unprofitable  due to overhead costs spiralling  out of control. This is Third World Britain. Welcome to Third World Britain a spectacular Tory Party vision and accomplishment.

Competition is the way forward for the public ownership of Gas and Electricity in Britain

A sure fire way to get the utilities and railways back into public ownership and the less costly way of achieving this.

Yes I admire the ambition of the Labour Party Manifesto and it’s aim to get the Gas and Electricity utilities and railways back into public ownership. Success of this would lead to a more prosperous and fairer Britain and it would be the start of a new era for Britain. Yes it is high time to reverse the failed privatisations of Margaret Thatcher and John Major, and this would be a move which would put Britain on track again. However the scale and the cost of the task is dauntingly enormous and Thatcher knew how difficult it would be to ever go backwards. She tried to make her privatisations irreversible in an attempt to frustrate any attempts to ever develop socialism in Britain. She thought that she had had the final word but despite this there was a fundamental flaw in her plan and one which the Labour Party could exploit if it is savvy enough.
