This week, the president of the CBI (Confederation of British Industry) said that investors are ‘reaching for their coats’ to leave the UK because of the prospect of public ownership. In our new video we’ve told them to embrace a mixed economy instead of defending the failures of privatisation.
We think the CBI is on the wrong side of history with this one. Public ownership will actually strengthen our whole economy, and that’ll be good for everyone - including business.
But if investors *really* can’t think of a better way to make money than by ripping off all of us who use water, energy, rail and Royal Mail, and exploiting our vital services for profit – then we’re happy to tell them: get your coats.
Because we’re taking our public services back.
The CBI is a powerful voice for business in Britain. Will you help us make sure they get the message by sharing this page?
