Re: Political self-obsession and onanism

"privatisation was a political decision"

The political aspect came in when the privatised BT was not allowed to move into cable. That it, not until the supposedly more commercial businesses had shown their commercialism in the extent to which they were going to limit their efforts to cherry picked areas. The BT was brought in late and more or less simultaneously berated for not having the universal fibre network it had been forbidden to build.
