Selling England by the Pound

Posted on

The news that Labour is planning to use some form of private finance initiative to supposedly revive the UK, which I have discussed this morning, and which Daniella Gabor discussed in The Guardian yesterday, made me recall an early Genesis album entitled 'Selling England by the pound'.

The opening track is the one the album title came from.

The unfortunate fact is that this is exactly what it looks like Labour wants to do. Such is its paranoia about supposed debt - which is the cheapest and most efficient way to transform the country (whatever the country that is being referred to is) - Labour would rather, in effect, transfer large parts of future tax revenue to foreign-controlled private equity partners.

Political depravity is rarely more obvious than this.
