The Nacts just love the idea of selling off the Government/Council monopolies. To sell the public, they push the free market “monopolies are bad” nemesis.
Monopolies and Duopolies have their place in our society, but they should be controlled and owed by Councils or Government.
In a small country like ours power generation is a natural monopoly it would seem pointless in having 5 power lines running into a house from five different power companies, sewer, water, roads, airports, the law even, are all natural monopolies.
These natural monopolies should be controlled by Councils or Government and that’s a good thing, because the so called Free market or private sector have only one idea for these natural monopolies, that’s extract as much money as they can from them, then keep milking them for all they are worth till the government steps in and regulates or before that happens they hope to sell them back to whoever they brought them from making a huge profit.
