In the meantime...

History shows that government is incapable of running any programme with more efficiency than the private sector. Discuss.

Not much time, so i'll g9ve the perfectly accurate bu geraralization as an answer.

Some things can onlybe run with any efficiency by government, because when they are proivatized, the need for streamlining may eclipse the public goal. We are here talking about things that government normally does, such as prisons, armies, etc. Best here is to accept that there will be waste, fraud, and abuse," and try to keep it to a minimum.

Anything else is much more efficient when done by th4e private sector.

Say, you Brits aren't going to have the government take over the coal mines again, are you?
