"remember the appalling indifferent service of nationalised industries (still available today from BT)"

BT was privatized 31 years ago. Any problems you have with it now are pretty hard to blame on state ownership... and might be taken as an indication that actually, the private sector is just as incompetent and unhelpful as state ownership was, only with the added bonus that they want to skim a 30% profit margin on top.
