Re: The IMF Speaks: The Tories got it wrong with Privatisation

The overwhelming majority of the privatisations were carried out under the Tories so it's only right they take an overwhelming amount of the blame. PFI was a Tory invention too. But PFIs were mostly implemented by Labour governments and the worst examples I believe were under a Labour watch when th...

Re: The IMF Speaks: The Tories got it wrong with Privatisation

I think Cunobelin could get a job as a Tory spin doctor. I could, but it would not be popular as this is about showing that ALL of the Governments oner the last decades have made catastrophic errors financially Dismissing PFI as an inconvenient contribution is where the spin really lies (Pun intend...

Re: The IMF Speaks: The Tories got it wrong with Privatisation

All who work or worked in public services of any kind have known this for 20 years. The PFI scams and related destructions of the public service ethic in favour of the profit motive wreaked havoc and degradation from the very beginning. It's led to not only the fleecing of the public purse and prop...

Re: HC update - opening motor vehicle doors ...

Cycling - when I can, I simply avoid the door zone by giving parked vehicles a wide berth. But that's not always possible on a busy road, [...] I'm sure we've had this discussion before, but I can't find it quickly. I believe it's always possible to ride wide of parked cars, but sometimes people ch...

Re: The IMF Speaks: The Tories got it wrong with Privatisation

I always love how people forget otherParties exist What about the effects of the Labour Party Economy, PFI etc? After all, as quoted: "The other big reason for the UK’s financial precarity is its privatisation programme, described by the IMF as no less than a “fiscal illusion”. British governme...

Re: Children to be banned from riding bikes without number plates.

I'm puzzled by some responses on here. Like any other responsible organisation, schools accept a responsibility for people coming to and from their premises. Part of their OFSTED is about their relationships in and with the local community and so good schools do take interest and action about anti-...

Re: Children to be banned from riding bikes without number plates.

Travellers have been used as an example several times here. <snip>. I agree with your post. I used travellers as an example, because they are one of the few groups (along with cyclists) that it's still OK to insult. But I think my point still stands. Fear of traveller behaviour is grossly dispropor...
