Citizenry outperforms govt. every time!
#1
http://www.btinternet.com/~jhpart/books.htm

Britain is a worse Stalinist cesspool than Ameriqaeda or Canuckistan is. No, it's not the people of Britain, Canada or America, it's the misgovernment and their armed thugs that are making things so dangerous here in Ameriqaeda and even worse in Canada and Great Britain.

This Website.
And so, after voting for real and decent politicians, time to make your own little bit of the world better.

We all know Britain is awash with incompetent workmanship. GNVQ's are a joke and real skills are being lost.
This website is here because Britain is over taxed and skills at an all time low. The following is a very wide spread of low cost skills. Save money and save time for better things, while developing a truly worthwhile sense of pride in your own abilities.

Cowboys rule: British Gas said our back boiler was no longer repairable but they could fit a new system for a thousand pounds. I found the part for under a fiver, fitted it within an hour and was then passed by a highly recommended independent gas expert.

Ordinary people can do better:
It's only government bullshit that keeps standards at an all time low: - Britain can no longer build trains. The French build the Royal Navy's aircraft carriers. The NHS needs prune juice for a chronic paper blockage. British stress, over use of antidepressants, under-age parents and violence are the worst in Europe. British A levels and Blairs 'Degrees for all' are a joke. If a hairdresser got his pet cat and rabbit awarded GNVQ's in hairdressing, then who's fixing your car brakes ?

Of course we can do better:
As standards fall, some of the most popular evening classes are DIY plumbing for women; as they understand the real situation: Self reliance makes for a better Britain. (and America and Canada!) See domestic repair section.
Blair has now passed laws to prevent home owners from doing their own work - We will ALL be criminals soon and that ID card will weigh very heavy indeed.

Sod Blair. Sod government training schemes. Sod the law. - Do it yourself.

If you're a kid hanging around British streets with nothing to do, then don't expect grown ups or politicians or the social services to help you develop your life into something worthwhile.
Just make your own life better through simple steps. Look for a friends garage or back yard, search out some metal and a good metal supplier and ask around for an unwanted motorcycle engine or a whole bike. Even just a tarpaulin or groundsheet in the back corner of a garden can be enough to build your own custom machines. Then ask around for a welder and build up a small set of tools. It costs a lot less then a packet of cigarettes or a few cans of brew. See my motorcycle mechanics monograph.
Yesterday I cycled 15 miles across Plymouth to buy some aramid and 20 feet of 3/4 inch thin wall steel tubing for my latest water-cooled computer system. The tubing cost 8 quid and I had to save up for a month, but it was a very nice afternoons ride. I carried a hacksaw to cut up the tube and bungeed it along the upper frame tube.
If things work out well and your workspace has an unwanted garden shed, then you can even build your own wind tunnel.
Most kids just stick pictures of bikes on their bedroom walls. By the time you are ready to take your motorcycle test, you and your friends may have built a few custom motorcycles and all for mere pennies.
If you like biking in Plymouth, then also check out my guide to Dartmoor Access routes.

I don't profess to know all the answers, but unlike my jobcentre, I believe we Brits are still the worlds best DIY'ers, teachers, engineers, nurses and doctors.
I'm just one of the tens of thousands who Blair pushes towards crime. - I'd prefer to repair your house than be pushed by my jobcentre to steal from it !

So for a much better world (and as a mild CV), this website offers help to anyone if they put their mind to it.

Nope, sorry, I can't agree with your take that citizenry can outperform governement every time.

I take a look at health care in the US and see that Medicare takes only a couple of percent to administer and private insurance takes 20-30%. Ooops. The private sector in health care in the US is killing us literally and financially. We have a better system already in place but people who want a profit won't let it happen.

When private interests are at stake, they only care about their profit, not about results. Screw that. I want my water to be safe, not passed by some retard who could care less about the level of contaminates as long as he/she gets their paycheck.

There are some functions that government can do much more efficiently and accurately than any private company could ever do. While the government may mess up from time to time, and in some areas, majorly, there are some things they do that no private company should ever do.

Do you want to pay to travel down the street? Why not turn the streets over to private enterprise? That way you could pay a toll for every block you travel. Why, getting to work might only cost you $20/day. What a deal!!!!

Perhaps we should turn the Fire Department over to private enterprise. If you didn't pay the going rate of extortion, oops, I mean insurance, then someone might torch your house, after all you want everyone in the neighborhood to pay, right? If you don't pay, it burns, darn, you are just out of luck.

Of course we could always have private police. This hits too close almost, as Portland police would rather shoot and kill than ask your name, but even so, do you want police coverage based on whether you pay their bill or not? So when the boogler comes to your home, you call, but they say, "sorry, you didn't pay your bill this month," so the boogler grabs your new plasma screen and screws your wife and laughs at you, and runs away free.

Sorry, this argument has no wisdom.

You really believe the kops can prevent a burglary?

Last time I checked they were not guarding my house. They are damage control and cleanup after the fact, half of murders go unsolved, the statistics for child abduction are obscene.

Kops have no duty to do anything, look it up if you do not believe me.

War on drugs, War on terra, poverty, Social Security, The economy and money. yep they do a fine job of protecting us while forcing us to participate in their protection scheme by gun point through involuntary payment schemes called taxes.

Call it what it is, forced welfare for pigs and bureaucrats. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/pissed.gif" alt="Pissed" title="pissed" />
To BELIEVE is to accept another's truth <br />To KNOW is your own CREATION. <br /><br />Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici<br /><br />Yep, I am so far left or right depending on how you look at it that I am a Anarchist.

Perhaps the police were a bad example to use. They do have their uses, yes, usually after the fact, but sometimes they do prevent more crimes by finding someone who has already offended. They can arrest as many meth users as they can find as far as I'm concerned. As my comment about the Portland police shows, their modus operandi is: Bang!!! "What's your name?" Not a ringing endorsement.

There are some functions that government does better than private organization, primarily protecting us from private organizations or organizing the commons for the benefit of all instead of the few. Water, fire departments and highways come to mind.

On the other hand, there are some places government does not belong. Buying and selling goods is one. I am a capitalist. Keep the government out of my business, unless I can do harm to the public without some sort of supervision. Building inspectors come to mind. Yea, yea, sometimes the rules go over board, but they also make sure we have safe buildings instead of death traps. You build a shoddy building that falls down and kills or hurts my family and I'll be looking for you with unfriendly intent. You say, no one will use you as a builder if your buildings fall down so the market is self regulating. Sorry, it is not worth a single life to find out you don't know how to build safely.

Even if your topic premise is correct, the reality of privatization is employees wages are lowered and prices are raised so the private entity can make a profit. I don't care to give my fire department a profit. Let them operate with what they need. They don't need an additional 10 or 20 or 30% profit on top of what it costs to for them to function. That profit comes out of our pockets. One of the basic reasons governments were formed was to pool our resources for the common good, not for some citizen's profit.

Perhaps you can find a private fire fighting company that can outperform the local public fire department. You will pay more, a lot more, and if they don't show up to do the job, your alternative is to fire them, as you watch your house burn down. My local public FD shows up and has accountability. They can't just pack up and run.

The original topic is not even about what you assumed it's about.

We'd all be SOL if we had to have a plumber's license to unclog a drain or fix a leaky faucet in our own homes. That's what they are talking about: learning real skills to compensate for dumbed down people with dumbed down government qualifications.

Jane,
You are right. I'm not sure why I read that whole piece wrong. Government is sometimes terribly stupid. What it should do, and what it does do often don't match up. It seems if some people are given a little power, they reach for more and build their little empires. I'm sure the "plumbing" ministry is delighted at having to license everyone. Or is it the plumber's guild who is trying to prevent people from doing their own work? Either way, someone found a way to exercise their power and we are the less for it.
