LETTER : Privatisation was about service for us all, not profit for a few

Out of the sale and near monopoly of many of the privatised companies, a minority of people did very well indeed. That did not stop the same companies from sacking thousands of others. The windfall tax is partly about making it understood that if society is to work then everyone must accept responsibility for what happens and that includes the boards of privatised companies. There is a social cost to sacking people.
