Sneaky Olmert

In today's newspapers, it says - one of the back pages - that the Israeli oil refinery companies - previously state owned, one in Haifa, and one in Ashdod - will be privatised soon, and the bidding has already begun. They will be sold in parts to different corporations, so as to encourage competition in the market.

There are no leftist protests, and there is not much publicity - but Olmert has sneakily made another blow against big government in Israel - and without doing the mistake he did with the privatisation of Bezeq, where it was sold off to just one businessman, with regulations making it difficult for VOIP companies to compete.

But, yes... another nail in socialism's long-awaited coffin.

Boris likes this. A lot.
