"BT used to be owned by everyone who paid taxes, then the torys gave it away to their friends who continued to raid the taxpayer for years and degraded the service whilst charging more for less."

It wasn't given away , it was sold and the money given to the treasury to use alongside taxation income. Whether they spent is wisely or not is another matter.

Many things should remain public where competition makes no sense, eg trains, NHS, however telecoms isn't one of those. The more competition in the telecoms sector the better for everyone.
