Why OH WHY did Blighty privatise EVERYTHING?

While we're talking about money...

How do the books balance out given the one-time cash intake to the Treasury from privatisation plus the avoided cost (year on year) of running the nationalised organisations? Why weren't the recipient Govs rolling in it?

Or have these aspects been forgotten as Thatcher conveniently neglected to mention the bonanza of North Sea oil revenue and its contribution to the exchequer?

(Yes, I woke up grumpy today)
