Sources for "We can't afford not to" infographic


OK, here is some source material on the infographic, so you can know for sure that I'm not just making it up.

Source one: Railways

Here's the original source: New chief's challenge to get Railtrack back on track - Financial Times

Here's my article explaining more about what this means: Tory rail privatisation and the £50 billion black hole of debt.

It's also worth considering that despite this hidden debt-hiding subsidy, the private franchises also receive more in subsidies per year than the annual cost of running the entire British Rail network, tracks and all, before privatisation in 1994!

Source two: Broadband
Ironically the CEBR report into the economic benefit of super-fast broadband was commissioned by the private company that's done such a lamentable job of rolling it out so far (BT Broadband). The UK has below 10% access, while advanced economies like South Korea and Japan are up to 98% and 97% already.

Source: British Broadband

Source three: Royal Mail

Here's the Daily Mail article explaining this extraordinary Royal Mail property portfolio under-valuation: Royal Mail 565% mark up on land sales

Here's my article: The Royal Mail property privatisation scam is really paying off (at the public expense)

Source four: Water companies

You can read the damning University of Grenwich report into water privatisation here: Privatised water: a system in need of repair

Excellent analysis, but sadly in my experience facts like this don’t wash with many tories. They seem in denial aware that If they accept even one of the tenets of Thatcherism is wrong then the whole edifice might come tumbling down.... it’s like they know their partner is being unfaithful but don’t want to deal with the consequences of admitting it,,,,

From the Labour manifesto, a quote from John McDonnell:
"“A plan that will challenge rip-off ‘out-of-contract’ pricing – and that will literally eliminate bills for millions of people across the UK."

Nationalised broadband will eliminate bills... Except the fat one we'll have to pay from increased taxation right...? FML.

@Guiscard:

I agree. You've also literally described Labour voters as well.

On another point, as Labour appear to have lost this election and Corbyn stated he'd resign if they do... Is anyone really, really hoping Diane Abbott will become party leader. As an ex Labour supporter I really, really hope this will be the case.

Except tax is paid to the govt not private companies and so can be invested. You are aware of that difference?

Unknown said...

Anonymous... would appointing Diane Abbott make you vote Labour again ... or do black people in positions of power scare you ? Your comment is unclear

@Unknown
Oh dear.
So you agree it doesn't get rid of the bill outright, it replaces it with higher taxation? I do hope you're not avoiding my point.

In answer to your own: Private companies invest as well. That's so unbelievably irrefutable I'm laughing my head off at your stupidity. How on earth are virgin media capable or this technological innovation if they don't?

https://www.libertyglobal.com/virgin-media-to-bring-gigabit-internet-to-millions-of-homes/

"Virgin Media has today unveiled a bold boost to UK broadband with plans that will bring next-generation gigabit internet to its entire network by the end of 2021. The move will make Virgin Media the UK’s largest and fastest widely available residential gigabit connectivity provider."

Fuck me, you Keynesian bitches are hilarious. You know what, I'll give you the fact that it was the state that invented the internet, that one's a given. But thank fuck the free market got to dispense it and still does. Have you been to a local library recently? That's the state sanctioned internet you want is it? Just imagine Diane Abbott as Home Sec. A racist, Mao sympathising boomer slowly ticking off all the things you're not allowed to do online until you're left with the BBC streaming service and John Mcdonnells super imposed face on your computer screen telling you the news followed by a whopping two minutes of hate.

Authoritarian bitches the lot of you TROLOL.

@Unknown.

No, I'd never vote for a racist that's why.

https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/12029702.abbott-denies-attack-on-nurses-was-racist/

"LABOUR MP Diane Abbott yesterday defended herself against charges of racism after criticising the appointment of ``blonde, blue-eyed'' Finnish nurses at her local hospital."

Oof. Man, if you're going to defend you decision later about bringing in people from abroad who don't understand the culture it's proabably not a good idea to have a go at them for having blue eyes and blonde hair is it?

Fuck me Unknown, do you ever feel like you're on a sinking ship with Labour? Like honestly: Do you think they'll win this election?

Fuckwit.

@Unknown:

You going to admit private companies blatantly do invest and that taxes will rise or are you slinking off back to your commie hole gobshite?

Unknown said...

Hey anonymous, had you realized there are several of us all posting as unknown?

@Unknown

Which Anonymous are you talking too?

Gonkster said...

Or you can pay all the taxes you do currently for no services whatsoever because tories privatise everything to foreigners and still charge you for it.

MisterAngree said...

Obnoxious Tory dickwads are out in force today, it would seem. I wonder how they - and the rest of the country - will fare under an awful right-wing government presided over by Bojo the Clown...

@Gonkster

Ironically I agree with you. Stop state subsidy and let the free market decide. There. Knew we could find some love in these pages x x

@Misterangree

Probably slightly better then under socialism but it's looking grim I tell you. But honestly we'd all be better off underneath a Libertarian party. I'd recommend it seeing as Socialism has failed again, and again, and again, and... You get the idea.

Just give it a go, you'd be able to vent about the state instead of capitalism and still lead yourself to an early onset stroke from all your MisterAnger LOL.

It's probably best for everyone you've dropped any line of debate from earlier. You were self owning so hard we were embarrassed for you.
