42,215.  In the next five years annual government spending will climb from £697 billion to £757 billion.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.

 

42,216.  We now have a national debt of £4.8 trillion.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.   

 

42,217.  Counted out in £50 notes our national debt would form a stack no less than 6,561 miles.  Or to put it another way, if we sold off all the houses and flats in the whole of the UK, we would still be the best part of a trillion pounds short of paying our debt.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.

 

42,218.  British governments have been steadily debasing the currency or printing money for decades through the deliberate expansion of credit.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.

 

42,219.  It’s very much in the interests of politicians to spend money.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.

 

42,220.  The idea that public spending will stimulate growth is the biggest myth of the twentieth century and is the cause of Britain’s economic decline.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.

 

42,221.  What do they all do?  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit)  ibid.

 

42,222.  The idea that we need state monopolies in order to look after the poor is obviously untrue.  (Business & Government & Public Sector & Debt & Economics & Finance & Currency & Money & Credit & Monopoly)  ibid.

 

 

42,231.  We look at the businesses and businessmen looking to take over our public services ... A handful of companies are set to make a fortune out of the spending cuts.  (Business & Companies & Contract & Public Sector & National Health Service)  Dispatches: Britain’s Secret Fat Cats, 2011

 

42,232.  Ordinary people are feeling the squeeze, but not the men whose companies are taking over the public sector.  (Business & Companies & Contract & Public Sector & National Health Service)  ibid.

 

42,233.  We’re handing over significant chunks of our public services to private companies.  And we the taxpayer are paying for those services.  But we have absolutely no say in what those companies pay to their chief executives.  (Business & Companies & Contract & Public Sector & National Health Service)  ibid.

 

42,234.  The truth is shareholders have shown little appetite in holding companies to account over the amounts they pay their chief executives.  (Business & Companies & Contract & Public Sector & National Health Service)  ibid.

85,638.  Power has only one duty – to secure the social welfare of the People.  (Power & Public Sector)  Benjamin Disraeli

 

 

85,773.  It can only be a disaster, a disaster on many levels.  For one thing you’ll see is the end of public service, and I think people now realise the true value of public service as the economy starts to melt down.  In a way, that’s the biggest example of what a disaster privatisation is, that public service as such never really implodes or melts down.  It’s a form of privatisation of capital ... That whole unspoken ethos would go.  (Privatisation & Public Sector)   John Pilger, interview re privatisation of Sydney ferry service

 

 

85,774.  The country was gripped by a borrowing frenzy.  And it fuelled the mother and father of all consumer booms.  This is the moment when British shopping goes turbo-charged ... In the 80s for the first time we are what we buy.  Now there was no stopping the revolution.  The Conservatives set about selling off state owned industries.  Oil, electricity, steel, water, phones, airlines, all sold to the private sector.  Privatisation became the very essence of Thatcherism.   And British Gas was the biggest privatisation of the lot ... Billboards proclaiming Tell Sid.  (Privatisation & Public Sector)  Andrew Marrs History of Modern Britain

 

 

85,775.  The New World Order also allows European Union controlled and private financed corporations to buy up critical government services like waste, water and electricity.  Privatisation isn’t private at all.  It is simply a partnership between select corporations that act more like organised crime rings or modern pirates in partnership between government to bring you this tyranny.  (Privatisation & Public Sector)  Alex Jones, Police State III: Total Enslavement

 

 

86,081.  The thing that worries me most about the private sectors prisons is frankly that because obviously they are trying to make a profit, they’ve got to decide where the can afford to cut corners.  And the corners they cut are usually to do with staffing, and staffing numbers.  (Public Sector & Prison)  Lord Ramsbotham, Chief Inspector of Prisons 1995-2001

100,188.  Once public servants were set performance targets they could achieve them in any way they wanted; the old bureaucratic rules could be thrown away and they would become heroic entrepreneurs.  (Freedom & Public Sector & Health Service)  Adam Curtis, The Trap II: The Lonely Robot

 

100,189.  Faced with the bankers’ argument Clinton agreed, and on taking office began to cut back on his reforms.  During his first term, he dismantled much of the welfare structure that had been put in place in the 1930s; he abandoned all his healthcare reforms and cut regulation of business.  (Freedom & Clinton & Economics & Market)  ibid.

 

90,538.  And in the management of society New Labour turned to the mathematical systems that John Major had brought in but on a scale never seen before.  They believe that people actually behaved in the way described by the simplified economic model.  Performance targets and incentives would be set for everything and everyone.  (Freedom & Health Service & Public Sector)  ibid.

 

75,565.  Hospital managers proved to be particularly devious.  When they were set targets to cut waiting lists, they ordered consultants to do the easiest operations first, like bunions and vasectomies.  Complicated ones like cancers were no longer prioritised.  And they found other clever ways of getting patients off the list.   (Freedom & Health Service & Public Sector)  ibid.

 

90,539.  But report after report came out which revealed that this inventive gaming of the system was now endemic throughout the public services.  What was supposed to be a rational system was instead creating a strange world in which no-one knew whether to believe the numbers or not.  (Freedom & Health Service & Public Sector & Number)  ibid.

 

 

91,057.  Social Insurance and Allied Services: Report by Sir William Beveridge.  He produced a government report infused with Victorian morality, proposing a social security scheme to combat want, disease, ignorance, squalour and idleness.  The plan was controversial.  (Think & Economics & Welfare State & Public Services)  Great Thinkers: In Their Own Words 

 

 

42,495.  Privatisation: ‘You take a public institution and you give it to an unaccountable tyranny.’  (Corporation & Privatisation & Public Sector)  Noam Chomsky, interview The Corporation 2003

 

 

109,293.  A freeze on pay for public sector workers is a tax increase for the public sector workers, and if it extends over over a couple of years, it’s a significant tax increase.  Noam Chomsky, Global Hegemony: The Facts The Images, lecture Oregon 20 April 2011

 

 

119,099.  Piccadilly was already a seething mass of people; the hoarding around Eros was crowded with young people mainly from the Forces.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  Ken Loach: The Spirit of 45, 2013, woman

119,101.  We’re still being taken in.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  ibid.

119,103.  The Labour Party is a socialist party and proud of it.  Its ultimate purpose at home is the establishment of the socialist commonwealth of Great Britain – free, democratic, efficient, progressive, public-spirited, its material resources organised in the service of the British people.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  ibid.

 

119,104.  The best health services should be available free for all.  Money must no longer be the passport to the best treatment.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  ibid.

 

119,105.  Newspapers carried the astonishing news to an amazed public – Labour landslide.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  ibid.  Pathe news

 

119,106.  We have been the dreamers, we have been the sufferers, now we are the builders.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  ibid.  Aneurin Bevan  

 

119,107.  The idea that people who worked in the industry had any say in how the industry was run was a completely foreign idea.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity)  ibid.  Tony Benn  

 

119,108.  It was not until 1967 that dockers gained permanent employment.  (Labour Party & 1940s & Welfare State & Public Sector & Solidarity & Docks)  ibid.
