    Every single airline of the top 10 best in the world are privately owned.

    A walking talking advert for the ills of neo-liberalism with added stereotypical nonsense to boot.

    Phillip Hammond has never run a bank but he is chancellor.
    Boris Johnson couldn't run a bath but he will be running a country
    Margaret Thatcher was a second rate Chemist who ran the country.
    Chris Grayling, well fuck me, he even gave contracts to a ferry company who didn't have any boats.

    Loving your work though, it really is desperate stuff, almost comical.

    Yeah but ….Marxist etc etc etc.

    If inbetween thinks private ownership is the best model, why don't we have any private armies? Why hasn't the Royal family been put out to tender? Why is my street not a toll road? Why have we not sold air to the private sector? Why not go the whole hog and sell off the Isle of Wight to a corporation who will run it better?
