    No?

    Why would anyone pay for defence or police if they didn't have to?
    Certainly I'd not bother with paying for street lighting or roads.
    Defence will always be a need as there are always people that desire to hurt people

    Road owners may not require payment for you to be able to drive on their road. Some may

    Same for defence, police, street lighting and primary/secondary education.
    There's no reason why healthcare has to be provided by a monopoly in the public sector.

    Healthcare isn't a "public good" like street lighting (as per the economic definition of "public good")

    Really? How many peeps do you think will pay the £500/capita/year we spend on the MOD?

    It'd need quite a force to monitor all UK roads.

    There is no reason Defense, police or street lights have to be either.

    Well in a free society, invasion would unlikely happen due to the availability of firearms.
    Of course our loving protectors, the state have banned us from defending our life and property.

    Saying the police or military should be privitised is rather different to healthcare because of what they do.

    You people must have a short memory, Liebour significantly increased the amount of PFIs in the NHS, over 200bil will be repayable.

    Many of which are among the worst ever deals that no one other than a corrupt profligacy that only Liebour could have come up with would have even dream of signing. Have fun paying £59.50 to replace a bulb that cost £10 on the open market.

    Someone is laughing all the way to the bank.

    Entire posts about typos are usually pedantic, but when that typo just so happens to lend a lot more credence to your argument, it ceases to be. Indeed, that typo put you in a good position - nobody could challenge that part of your argument without being made to look pedantic!
