    I've just noticed how disgustingly socialist Sim City is.
    That's because a free market would leave you with nothing to do.

    But the means of production are private not state controlled ?
    They explicitly state they are not privatising the police, the NHS are getting even more funding from the state, the BBC and Channel 4 are keeping their state control, as if TfL, etc etc

    There are some things the state can do better than the private sector, for instance the military, intelligence agencies, the emergency services, and the administration of emergency healthcare. I disagree with the insistence of keeping ownerships of media companies, but a global free-market, free-trade, privatised approach to everything is bad economic policy that will lead to failure. Britain needs to keep lame duck industries for natural disasters around the world, trade wars, long-term economic security, and to maintain skills in the country.

    I wouldn't say control over proceedings is ceremonial, accusations of a Labour bias.

    I agree, but only because other countries are strategically playing global markets for their own benefit and we need to tackle that politically, not as individual economic agents.

    Well, ceremonial in the sense that it's only seen as particularly important due to tradition..if parliament were invented today a civil servant would do it.

    I haven't noticed a Labour bias.

    I am concerned that you buy drinks at a company that aggressively tax avoids. And provides over-priced drinks with in many cases lots of sugar.

    I spoke, but as I was pointed at to speak I forgot what I was going to say so I came across really badly.
