isbn: 9780470182390 is a book that describes that mainstream left wing policies are the same as right wing policies. Put simply Tony Blair* was really a conservative although you thought otherwise.

This is not to say that all government spending is good but when you outsource and have no competition that also has consequences. This has been seen in military spending if the government does not train soldiers then how do the pmc’s like blackwater (since renamed) find employees.
