Trouble With The Waterworks

An argument against the greater efficiency and effectiveness of public ownership where utilities and other public services are concerned? Not at all.

Rather, an argument against the control of these things at too low a level, which is as pernicious as their control at too high a level. And an argument against the carve-up between a bizarre fundamentalist sect with links to the 1980s sectarian Right and a Marxist terrorist organisation with links to the 1970s sectarian Left, the model of the "centre ground" politics favoured by our Political Class of ageing Eighties Rightists and aged Seventies Leftists.
