Head of Communications at the Adam Smith Institute Kate Andrews was quoted in City AM on YouGov's recent nationalisation poll.
Head of Communications at the free market Adam Smith Institute, Kate Andrews, told City A.M.:
YouGov's poll question was rooted in fantasy: it's easy to choose ideology over pragmatism when you're guaranteed a high standard of service in either case. But the public and private sector do not offer the same standards of service.
Railways, utilities, and many of the other services polled by YouGov have proven to be more expensive and less efficient when run by the state. As long as policy is determined by ideological biases towards providers, consumers will continue to get the short end of the stick.
