NOW   is me

Today, more and more people are realising that private enterprise is not the answer to all our problems,   on the railways, for example, is is dear to almost everyone that its introduction has led to chaos.  The Health Service, the buses, even the prisons, are just some of the other experiments revealing that the scramble for profits does not equate with the provision of good service.   But there are widespread doubts about the efficiency of state enterprise as an alternative.

Consumer co-operatives, worker co-operatives and other mutual organisations offer another, non-bureaucratic way of meeting peoples' needs.  They can provide efficient, socially-motivated services in almost every sphere of human activity.   And because they are self-supporting, co-operatives and mutuals are just as quick to respond to changing needs and preferences as private firms

Progressive co-operators have for years been in the vanguard of the struggle to involve the co-operative movement in every aspect of contemporary life - and to ensure that it remains true to its democratic principles.  With all sections of the movement united in Co-operatives UK, now is the time for a massive advance!
