Living in Soviet Britain

There is a report in Today's Times that the Government now controls more than 70% of the economy in some parts of Britain. That wouldn't be an unusual figure for a communist country but for the UK?!!!

We seem to be entering a vicious circle, where rising unemployment is forcing the public sector to create ever more jobs. Meanwhile the brightest and best are fleeing abroad, leaving an ever shrinking private sector. This country seems to be stuck in a downward spiral. To echo the Sun's famous headline, will the last person to leave Britain please turn out the lights.
