VISION AFORETHOUGHT

Common sense analysis of this, that and the other

Corbyn is right

V busy, but being we’re about to have another election and the whole future of the country is at stake, (and consider this as part of my own planetary manifesto), society should be structures as follows:

Core infrastructure, such as the following, managed by the state, with private companies contracted by tender to provide any tactile products, such as rolling stock and such. (Similar to how the military operates.)

  • Railways
  • Motorways
  • Internet
  • National Health Service

Non essentials, managed by the private sector with the state there to protect consumers against poor business practice. IE…

  • Cars
  • Mobile phones
  • Flat screen TVs
  • Music streaming services
  • Etc

People argue that the trains used to be far worse when state owned. Totally untrue. The carriages had private compartments and comfortable seats. The staff were well dressed and polite. Only downside was trains polluted a lot more then because they were often reliant on dirty fuels.

We need a consistent brand for the railways – nationwide, fair pricing, well treated staff and modern technology. Today, each train is different, some with WiFi, some with decent fold down trays behind the seats, some with dirty toilets, some with well positioned power sockets, some journeys of the same distance cost more than others and so on. This inconsistency of design and pricing means that passengers are forced to choose based on their location, IE, it’s luck of the draw whether you get a good service.

If the government brings in top designers and visionaries to design a rail network of the future, it can then give the private sector the work to realise the design. The upside will be a less exhausted and frustrated commuter that in turn will be good for the economy.

Infrastructure cannot be for profit, it has to be there as a foundation with which to BUILD a successful ethical economy.

The same with the mobile phone business. We are still no there yet. Whole areas lacking coverage making it annoying for the locals and equally so for business people travelling who need to gain access to the cloud away from the office, cafes, pubs and so on.

Fight back club: Vote for consistency and fairness
