You are right it is divide and conquer. The point is that we can't afford it now. When we could afford it we didn't pay for it. So why would people expect great service now that the private sector has dragged us into the mire?
And sorry I did forgot about the role of the politicos in my last post - but I think I covered them quite well in the few previous posts - as in the 'feel and fall' contribution to our downfall.
But the OECD tells us that the proportion of our national income that went towards public services here was simply absolute rubbish during the boom - nobody wanted to pay for it then. So why would they want to pay for education and health services and the like now?
Who the flip cared about education, health, roads, all that when we were supposedly 'richer' than anybody else in the whole wide world and everyone ha an SUV?
But you go to on holidays to a supposed 'third world' island in the atlantic and they had better roads than us.
Very few public servants were driving SUVS then or now.
Why the F%&$CK would the private sector want to pay for stupid stuff like education and health services and pothole filling now?
We have much better things to spend our tax money on. Bailing out greedy bankers being top of the list.
Postbank Halifax Anglo Irish - all useless private sector banks that we could have done without but now we are stuck with their incompetence. And paying for it too.
And they are giving out because the phones are not answered. Perhaps they are taking the advice from gurus such as MOL whose phones are never answered anyway - but he's smart he's PRIVATE SECTOR.
The point is that we can't afford it now. When we could afford it we didn't pay for it. So give us a break.
