The Real Public Service Of Nationalisation

Council Witness
If you like me are sick and tired of the monarchy and the wider establishment stuffing endless cake into their mouths at our expense to "celebrate" their so-called "public service" - you will be relieved to hear the Labour Party are now on their return to public ownership - the REAL public service and where TRUE patriotism should reside !

Nationalisation is the natural foundation of civilisation

Spoken like a true republican. Hear hear.
We haven't inherited the earth from our parents, we have borrowed it from our children.

There are some royals I cannot stand but a couple I like.  However, the concept of monarchy is so out dated, in my view, it should go.

Sir and ma'am is not for me and I would most certainly refuse a knighthood.
Refugees do not have the right to demand but should accept the blessings bestowed upon them gracefully by nations extending the hand of friendship.

Dont tell me you'd turn down a peerage?
I think Vicount Ho Hum of Hornchurch has a wonderful ring to it.
And just think! 300 smackers a day for pitching up stay a couple of hours have your afternoon kip and the added bonus of claiming cab fares from Hornchurch to Westminster (at least 60 quid return) while using your freedom pass and a three course five star Michelin lunch for a fiver served by a few dolly bird waitresses and you might get to share a table with Lady Watshername your absentee former mp.
What more could a man ask?

Not to mention the tax-payer subsidised Champagne, cocaine, rent boys and prostitutes.

Yes and the essential services like Electric ,gas and water will be easy and cheap to nationalise simply set up or purchase one of those providing now .Offer the energy ,water at 10% less than the others as it has to pay no shareholders and the others go broke so you get them free. Maintenance is already provided by national grid so nothing changes there except you can tell them how much you will pay as they have no alternatives.  For rail you remove all subsidies and cap prices and they become effectively nationalised until their franchise expires or they give up. The essential thing is to come to a deal with the workers on pay and conditions and ban striking.
Revolutions are always verbose.

There's an easy way to stop workers striking for higher pay stop taking seventy percent of their income in direct and indirect taxes.
