More of the Family Silver Being Flogged

Remember Thatcher flogging the family silver? Water, electricity, gas, British Rail and more? Now Cameron and his renegade side kick Clegg have wasted no time in picking up the handbag and are now about to sell off our Postal service.

Using the same con trick of Thatcher the employees will be offered the carrot of getting some of the shares but inevitably they will be forced by the hardships about to descend on us to sell them off. The shares of course ending up with the rich and multi national corporations. What will be next on their agenda of party political theft? I suggest keeping a close eye on our National Health Service, not in one go of course but little by little by stealth.

Our only hope is the collapse of this disastrous coalition and another election to correct our mistake of last May.

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.
