I choo choo choose

In the absence of any ideology or principles, having bartered them for a shot in the big game, the current regime bows down to the idol of choice. Choice is good. Maggie taught us that choice equals lean, mean operators, shaving costs and passing them on to us the customer. Never mind that every customer who needs to work for a living is also an annoying cost in some other economic equation, there to be minimised or removed completely.

Many people in England are unaware they now have more choice over where they can get NHS treatment. As of 1 January, patients can choose between at least four hospitals or clinics for non-emergency treatment.
But a Mori poll of 1,276 over-40s found 80% knew little, if anything, about the changes.

We don't want a fucking choice. Save the money you sickening oleaginous turds and make the healthcare provision nearest to where I live as good as it can possibly be. How fucking empowering to be given the option to take my treatment in Aberdeen if I can afford to get there.

Choice = competition = markets = commercial providers = profits? Idiots.

Government is not about the citizen - the needs of corporations, their stockholders and a dogmatic single track stupidity that measures everything in fiscal terms is what rules us now. We know the (competitive) price of everything and the value of nothing.

Maybe we should take on the responsibility of promoting this new found choice, any ideas?
A matte varnished tome with pretty spot varnished pics maybe...?
I think we should run it past Patricia Hewitt, or 'that fucking smug supercilious lying cow' as I've been refering to her recently.

I like it, it has a touch of aliteration and sibilance to it, perhaps too long for a business card but hey.

Matt laminate and spot UV, the classic choice when your trying to fleece people with a brochure. For I too have worked for property developers.

As Thatch once said, "There is no such thing as society". What a charming sentiment. And in such an innocent sounding comment lies the problem with the way the country has developed in the last 25 years.

Don't care for anyone else or anything else. Think only of yourself and f**k the world around you. As Mondo says we know the price of everything and the value of nothing. It's a sad and dark world in which we live were nothing has any worth unless it is monetary worth.

She also said that greed is good. No it isn't you feeble minded, grasping, crooked, evil, harridan.
