    The "reduction of the state"....

    Even while Ivanhoe keeps rabbeting on about about the "reduction of the state" I have to comment that there is proof in the papers this morning of this fact.

    The Scottish Daily Record reported today that there is now 38,000 fewer people working in the public sector than there was in 1999.

    I don't think that anyone is arguing with Ivanhoe over this laboured point. I just think that his needle is stuck in the groove and he cannot get off the subject.

    There is absolutely no doubt that the Tories are working extremely hard to destroy our public sector so that their friends in the private sector can step in and make a bomb.

    It is the death by a thousand cuts that the NHS is suffering under that bothers me the most and if we do not get rid of this destructive mob it will very soon disappear altogether.

    Even good public services are sold off cheaply to the private sector like the Royal Mail, and the successful East Coast rail network after the last private company gave it up because they could not make enough profits from it.

    Now we are seeing this rail-network being again sold of to a state-owned Dutch company. ( It seems as if they would far rather sell the franchise to a state-owned Dutch company than keep it under British state ownership ). Where is the sense in that ?

    The privatisation dogma of The Tories seems to replace good common sense every chance they get.
