Your rose tinted glasses have obviously been painted over bright red. Since when has nationalisation meant successes and efficiency? Was it the railways? No, They were crap. Was it British Leyland? No that was irreversibly brought to its knees. Perhaps the steel industry? Nope that didn't work either. Nationalisation is one of those ideas that seems good in principle but end in dismal failure. Well, in this country at least, comrade. Except with regard to the NHS, which though far from perfect, mainly due to a lack of money, is far better of than it would be if sold off to the yanks.
