A Round Peg in a Square hole……

Born into an age in which I do not Feel I Belong……

I am neither a man of the present, nor a man of the past.  A part of me wishes I had been born into the industrial revolution; part of me looks forward to the advances in modern science.  Either way, I do not fit into the current market forces which drive our current competitive industry……

The Competitive Economy……

Surely, by definition, the objective of a competition is to win?  Ed Milliband announced yesterday that the deregulation of the utility industries was to introduce competition.  He now claims that, due the supply being in the hands of 6 companies, this is now anti-competitive.  You can’t have your cake and eat it.  If you set up a competition, the aims of which are judged on the profits you return, it is hardly surprising that this has happened.  Privatised industries have one objective; to make as much money as possible without regard to the human impact they have in the pursuit of this goal.  It is philosophical ultalitarism in acton.  Unlike other competitions, there can be no challengers, as to ‘win’ the competition you must usurp the challengers by rendering them incapable of mounting a challenge due to lack of funds.  This is a typical governmental piece of logic in action……

Untenable……

This situation is the same for almost all of our deregulated industries.  These are generally the ones set up by the state, using tax payer’s money, then sold off to the highest bidder under the miscomprehension that introducing competition was in some way supposed to help the consumer.  All industries are heading in this direction, leaving me and you in their wake.  If you don’t have the cash, you can’t take part.  This is leaving some of us in an untenable position where we cannot afford to pay the bills, eat and have any kind of social communication with our family and friends.  Once again, and I’m sorry if this sound boring by now, but I will shortly find myself unable to exist in this competition and will need to exit the game……

Organised Crime……

The perpetrators of this situation are the same old corrupt criminals in charge of UK Plc.  It is only with the overthrow of these people that we could seize back control of our national industries and run them in the interest of the public and charge only what is necessary to run these businesses at a break even point, guaranteeing jobs, affordable bills and suatianablility for the rightful owners of our infrastructure……

“Nothing short of a revolution will achieve this goal”

 

The fight begins here……
