Public services for people not profit.

There’s a really good website which I check out regularly called We Own It: public services for people not profit.

The campaign’s welcome page says:

We believe in public services for people not profit – whether that’s the NHS, the railways, water, energy, council services or care work.

Public services belong to you, me and everyone. We campaign against privatisation and make the case for public ownership.

We use it, we pay for it, we own it.

If you go to this page and click on one of the icons, you’ll find several accounts of privatisation failures across the whole of the public services.

And some of them are scandalous!

Especially those private companies making profits from  contracts with our NHS.

We did it before; we can do it again!
