So energy prices are going up again. When Maggie denationalised most of these Utilities it was because the were inefficient and the customer i.e the Tax Payer was not getting a good deal for their money. Her idea was for local companies to take over the running of them, creating many different companies, becoming more efficient and offering a better deal for the customer. So what has happened since then instead of keeping the Utilities in the hands of British Companies where a British Government could have some sort of control, since then all governments Labour and Tory have sold them to the highest bidder to get money for their pet projects. So now we are in the hands of Foreign Multi National Companies who care nothing for the British people their only thought is profit. They can at any time switch of our energy and hold our country to ransom, Government as well. Maggie's great idea has been once again misued by Government's following her like most of brilliant ideas.
I do not want to return to Nationalisation that doesn't work what we need is Government regulation that forbids Multi Nationals or Foreign Companies having complete control of our Utilities let them have 30% control only, the rest can be owned by British Companies with British Share holders only UK Subjects would be allowed shares., that way we can maintain some sort of control. The idea that all these companies offer real choice is ridiculous if they did why are the prices all about the same, they are a cartel nothing more
Morality needs to return to business
