Jeremy Corbyn will nationalize UK utilities in 100 days. 'Simply huge' changes loom if Labour wins the election

 

by Julia Horowitz


… snip …


Britain's two main political parties both want to increase government spending after a decade of painful austerity under Conservative-led administrations. But opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has pledged to dramatically expand the role of the state and boost public spending to levels not seen in a generation if voters send him to Downing Street on December 12.


On Labour's policy wish list: nationalizing major utilities, a 32-hour work week, giving 10% of shares in large companies to workers, increasing the power of unions, freezing the retirement age at 66 and building out public housing stock on a large scale. The party has pledged to finance higher spending with big tax hikes for corporations and Britain's wealthiest 5%. Borrowing to fund investment would reach £55 billion ($72.4 billion) annually by fiscal year 2023.


The overhaul would unfold at breakneck pace. Labour said Monday that it would begin the process of nationalizing water and energy companies within 100 days of taking office.


"It's clearly a blueprint for a long term, fundamental change of the role, size, scale and scope of the state in the UK," Paul Johnson, director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, an independent research institute, said at a recent presentation to journalists.

 

… snip …


A 'simply huge' shift


The United Kingdom already has universal health care and a substantial social safety net. But belt-tightening measures imposed following the global financial crisis have eaten away at budgets for policing, hospitals and welfare. Corbyn, who would be the first Labour leader since 2010, has promised to "rewrite the rules of the economy" if voters choose him over Conservative Prime Minister Boris Johnson.


Labour has proposed to increase day-to-day spending — a category that includes pay hikes for public sector workers, abolishing university tuition fees and rolling out free prescriptions — by £83 billion ($109.2 billion) in fiscal year 2023. Investment in long-term projects, such as a green infrastructure program and building new hospitals and schools, would double from current levels.

 

As a result, state spending as a share of national income would jump to a threshold not seen outside of the financial crisis since 1977, according to the IFS. The research group noted that this proportion of spending has never been sustained in the United Kingdom "for any significant period of time."

 

"This is a simply huge increase that takes us to a big state by historical standards," Torsten Bell of the Resolution Foundation, a think tank, wrote in his own analysis.


… snip …


The size of the state would also grow through the nationalization of key utilities, including water, mail, energy infrastructure and railways. Corbyn recently announced that Labour would also provide "fast and free" broadband across the country by nationalizing Openreach, BT Group's telecoms infrastructure arm. Taken together, the plans would shift 5% of total UK assets from private to public ownership, according to IFS.


To finance a wave of fresh spending, Labour will need to lean on higher taxes and borrowing while interest rates are near record lows. The tax companies pay on their profits would jump to 26% from 19%, raising more as a percentage of GDP than any other G7 country, per the IFS. The party has also pledged to tax financial transactions and reform how the government taxes capital gains and dividends. And it would increase income taxes on people making more than £80,000 ($105,275) per year.


… snip …


Then there's the concern that Labour, once in power, could go even further than what's in its manifesto. The worry, per Gregory: If a significant policy like nationalizing broadband was added to the party manifesto at the last minute, what else could be on the table?

 

 

 

This is another ploy by COMMUNISTS calling themselves Fabian Socialists to take over the UK.

 

And Fabian Socialists (in the disguise of democRATS) would like to do the same thing here in the US.  

 

Don’t for one moment think otherwise, and if you let them do it, folks, you'll have no one else to blame.

 

Just saying ...

The immense stupidity of Brexit will result in disaster for the UK, no matter who runs the country. There will be more support for Scottish independence and finally the logical union of all 32 Counties of Ireland. 

 

I expect that soon the Pound will be worth less than the Euro, then the dollar. Labour is nor a Communist party, it is basically more of a Social Democratic movement. Poor Loser is an obsessed political dimwit.

Labour has beaten the Tories many, many times, and the UK is still not any sort of Communist.

The major issue of the UK will not be communism, but the horrid mess that Brexit has created.

I do not "run" from you. I MOCK your pitiful ignorance and stupidity.

I cyberpee on your cybershoes and you are but a pitiful and  defenseless dimwit.

HA!

Corbyn is a Marxist loon and an anti-Semite. He is destroying the Labour Party.

 

If Labour had sound leadership it would mean the end of the deeply unpopular Boris Johnson.

 

But with the alternative being Corbyn? The Tories will win.

 

I wish there was a groundswell for the sane Liberal-Democrats (the only real anti-Brexit party).

Labour won when led by the liberal moderate Tony Blair. They won't win with the far-left radical Marxist lunatic Jeremy Corbyn.

 

Corbyn is a gift to the Conservatives.

Some men want freedom.

More than money and security.

What did William Wallace say when he was being..... "racked to death"?

Mel Gibson did a great job in "Braveheart".  I think it is a classic that will live for a 1000yrs.             🍸.

Wakey Wakey – Exit Polls Show Landslide Conservative Boris Johnson Win in U.K. Elections – Open Discussion Thread….


A “landslide”, a complete “wipe-out”, a “massive victory” appears looming for Boris Johnson and the conservative party in the U.K. if exit polls are accurate.

These blowout results guarantee a faster Brexit from the European Union and the leftist labor party in the U.K. has been crushed.  Conservatives look to have picked up 50 seats and Labor has lost 71 seats; the Scottish National Party (SNP) has picked up 20.

 


Now let’s see if voters in the US can do the same in 2020.   Reelect Trump in a landslide and send the democRATS and RINOs packing in Congress.
