‘Social contracts‘ proposed in this article are for the birds. In a fashionable term, it’s ‘highly nebulous’! A Far-Left Labour will try to re-nationalize public utilities, financial constraints permitting. A Conservative government needs to look to populism for the way forward. Across Europe people are distrustful of elites and experts. ‘Ordinary people’ know about UK former nationalized industries, their costs and their service/quality levels. I totally disagree with this op-ed Guardian article by Ofwat’s, Rachel Fletcher. A Conservative Government needs a radical change agenda for public services – the best place to start is to fire the regular and start again with ‘zero based design’. For another industry, consider British Air Transport, with their Third World quality/service levels, but lots of status quo cost-plus facilities – fundamentally wrong in oligopolies. Thoughts?
An excellent political round-up from POLITICO. Scary who’s financing Britain’s nationalist dark web? Could this ever lead to the UK’s own Mueller type investigation? Theresa May is right to kill another referendum in Parliament today. Now’s the time to face the realities of a Managed No-Deal. Remember, hope for the best but plan for the worst! Thought?
