Yes but the thing is, Tony Blair has several times come out and accepted that was a mistake. I have no problems with parties saying they've learnt. New Labour clearly learnt that message, which is why Miliband got shit for allowing mugs to be sold at conference which said 'controls on immigration.'
Pragmatic Labour centrists are now willing to take it on.
Again, I have no problem with some very small private contracts to improve services as long as the basic premise stays the same.
You can list one or two things you hate, but they did so much for shit northern people like me, middle class southern people who don't live in these towns and just scoff, like you're doing, and go 'but there was some privatisation!!!11!!!'
Before you say you personally are not middle class, that's not the point.
Ahh, more sneering is it?
I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about, because it worked perfectly.
The parties are scrambling and Theresa May has quite bonkers with it all, but they're paying attention now. They're trying anything radical because they've understood, it just wasn't working the way it was.
I can't fault them for trying, even though they're getting the message and implementation catastrophically wrong, it sent out something very clear. If we had have voted to stay, it would have been business as usual.
This is typical pathetic smearing. So the good things Tony Blair did are only comparable to anti-smoking campaigns and the rest is literal Nazism ? Get a fucking grip. This is when people stop to take the good points you say seriously.
It cracks me up. Guardian commentators and middle class people alike just don't get it.
'The pound's down! Holiday's are more expensive! Stocks are going haywire and increasing but only because the pound is cheap, they're gonna fall! Our national standing has been decreased! The city will lose billions.'
Nobody fails to grasp that people still voted out because they've been left behind, they can't afford the holidays, they can't afford to exchange currency and go away anyway, they don't have shares in anything, they'll never get a cushy London job and the banks mean nothing to them, they just have their depressing post-industrial existence that had it's only supply line cut because of said bankers, who got all the money to bail them out. They don't want to be part of a feel good EU club because nothing about it feels good for them.
The EU wasn't the archnemesis, and if anything, it improved a lot of money distribution in the UK and spent on proejcts that the UK govt never would have, but by upsetting the whole system, frustration could finally be voiced.
Yet, rather than understand this message, people still are sneering. Madness.
