Off with her head

Even Thatcher refused to sell off the Queens head but no such monarchic reverence was shown by Cameron. The very British disease of privatisation left the Royal Mail headless and up to £6 billion lost to the public purse in the disastrous sell off. In this excellent analysis on the Open Democracy website the international failure of privatisation is laid open but shows that only in Britain are politicians, the public, and the trade unions, inept in challenging the privatisation machinery that supports the asset stripping of the public sector and lines the pockets of the elite.
