P.O. & E.U.
I recently wrote to my (Lib/Dem) MP to clarify their position on support for selling off part of the Post Office and Royal Mail.
We can agree that the Post Office needs a cash injection to maintain and improve what is actually a brilliant service but according to my MP it is likely to against EU law for the Government to supply this finance which leaves selling off a part of it the only viable option.
If this is indeed the case (I have written to my MEP for confirmation) there is something seriously wrong with a law that denies supporting an efficient national service while at the same time allowing huge sums to be given to bail out private banks.
