But why should we have to put up with it? Oh, someone just knifed my grandmother through the eye. But that's just fine, it's the world we live in now.
Live any life I want? OK, I'll rob a bank for £10m and live the life of Riley. Think that'll work?

I still think the "organised criminal syndicate" is the most viable option to make sure the majority puts in its share, lets face it if you gave everyone to opt out some would opt and and do absolutely bugger all for anybody.
It also means you could drive from an area with billiard table smooth roads in one area code to an area with the craters of the moon in the next area code, in effect a series of micro governments ruling/overseeing there own little patch much like the council authorities we already have.
Greed for money and power would eventually rule and we would have more corruption and lies than ever before, with us being fleeced by all and sundry rather than the just the governments 20%

Holiday camp prisons?
Care to name one?
Not the ones I know of.
None of the ones my friends and family have been in.
I care not about the rest of your right wing parroting.
