wiganshale’s almanac

fact: The Army is being very sharply pruned and all its reserve stores (including heavy armaments) are being sold off.

fact: private companies have been given lucrative contracts to augment security services in Afghanistan, hiring sacked soldiers. (it’s handy that they’ve had a few unnecessary wars to hone their skills)

fact: The Police Force is being very sharply pruned and all its reserve stores are being sold off.

fact: there is no logical reason for not flying the National flag in Belfast (unless it’s to ensure that the loyalists continue to riot and provide an excuse to bring in harsher policing methods)

fact: private companies have been given lucrative contracts to run prisons

fact: private companies have been given lucrative contracts to run hospitals and orher parts of the dying NHS

fact: private companies have been given lucrative contracts to run schools, whilst Ofsted reports that despite overkill by decades of Ofsted franchisees. there are still just as many bad schools and bad teachers. (the GTC quango has only removed a score or so of these bad teachers but has supplied well paid sinecures political placemen of the main parties)

fact: there are certain preferred companies, which are soaking up most government service contracts: D4S, Serco, Capita (http://www.corporatewatch.org/?lid=2578)

fact: The Government warning , that the price of shares can go down as well as up, doesn’t apply to our privatised utilities or the banks.

fact: plans to privatise the more lucrative roads, which are all now in good repair at public expense, have been dusted off and will be fully implemmented by the next General election

prediction: Most state services and facilities will be privatised by the next General Election

prediction: the next general Election will be a landslide for Labour with UKIP in second place

prediction: Ed Miliband will lament that we are committed to these millstone contracts, because of Tory contracts and Tory debts.

prediction: Dave will gain many lucrative contracts, lecture tours and directorships (not of the privatised compamies but the companies, which own them).

prediction: Ed Miliband will, when he retires, receive almost as good a set of incomes and probably be ennobled.

prediction: The Peterloo Massacre will be re-enacted, within a decade.
