47er Posted April 16, 2013 Share Posted April 16, 2013 Well if the complaint is that she sold off the previously nationalized industries which was not in the UK's interests (something I disagree with), it would seem that Blair had the votes to re-nationalize them. And if he promised to do so what explains his failure? As to the cost, if the UK could nationalize them once, why not again? where does the money come from? Not from the previous sale of nationalised industries because she spent it. Massive increase in taxation? Would do to the economy what Cameron has done to it---if people can't spend, there is no demand. Besides which, if Blair could renationalise, the next Conservative government could redenationalise and we could go on like that forever to the detriment of the country. Its not Blair's fault for not trying to undo what she did interms of privatisation, he had enough to do repairing the damage to the NHS and the education system. Cameron doing his best to ruin both by the way. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
