    Chocolate factory could run schools

    Now they've destroyed the NHS, they are making a start on education, well, actually, they've already made a start, but you get the idea:

    The Government plans to create a new category of school called trust schools, which will be managed by private-sector organisations including charities, religious groups or businesses.

    Computer giant Microsoft and consultants KPMG took part in public talks with Ms Kelly and Tony Blair on Monday, but it has emerged that a number of companies including Cadbury Schweppes held private discussions at the same time.

    I wonder if they'll get the children to help with their marketing like they do in some schools in the US? This policy is a disaster waiting to happen.

    It is part of an ideology to privatise everything. To have a completely user pays system. Business will own everything, from your genetic code to the water you drink. Bah humbug..

    Thanks for your comment beep beep, this idealogy, in my humble opinion is completely wrong.

    And we can predict how well the privatisation is likely to work.

    A right-wing guy challenged me (and others) to learn economics so we could see the great wisdom of the market. It would have been better for him to keep his mouth shut.

    If you liked that one, you might like this one.

    Unforunately, he had already run off before I had published it.

    In his defense, he studied mainstream economics, so he had no clue of what he was talking about.
