Why public ownership makes sense

If you need some basic repairs carrying out on your car, or your house (if you are lucky enough to own one) then you know that the cheapest way to get the repairs done is to do them yourself.  Assuming you have the skills then you will do a better job because you care about the result.  It is faster and easier, but more importantly you know that you are not having to pay someone else’s profits and overheads, and so it is far cheaper.  Britain is a nation of DIYers.

Why should it be any different for the country?  If we want cost-effective roads, railways and other infrastructure that is essential then it is common sense for the us to own and maintain them themselves.  We will do a better job because we care about the results.  It’s faster and easier and we know that we are not having to pay someone else’s profits and overheads and so it is far cheaper.  Public ownership simply makes sense.

So let’s vote for a government that wants to bring back critical infrastructure into public ownership.
