General point

Lenin writes "The system is failing, the neoliberal solution doesn't work, parliament is increasingly impervious to our needs, and we're facing a crisis in which we find elected officials happy to pour money into the City, but extremely reluctant at best to do anything which alters the fundamentally unfair distribution of wealth and power in the society.", over at the tomb.

A point that's going to apply wider and wider.

For instance in France at the moment there's a postal strike against government plans to privatise the service. What great timing. Just as the neoliberal system is exposed for the sorry sham it is, Sarko is pressing ahead with selling off a public good to the useless greedy bastards that have got us into this mess in the first place.
