Reply To: Luton (or other airport) takeovers -right or wrong?

The reason why Germany won’t build trains in the UK is because Germany supported it’s industry – round about the same time the Tories were waging war on UK industry – and therefore Germany still has a train building industry.

But why does it matter? This is how privitization works. It makes UK plc leaner, more agile does it not?

When people were queing outside to get their windfalls from Alliance & Leicester, Bradford and Bingley etc. were we not giddy on the wonders of modern business? When our utilities were privitised, it could only bring competition and lower prices. And when I switch on the gas, I wonder at the efficiency with which it is delivered to my home.

AENA can buy any airport they like, I really don’t give a shit.
It’s the free market at work at work.
