The Royal Mail, our Royal Mail, has been sold off by this government on the cheap, without a thought for the vast majority of people who were against them selling off our assets. The sale began today, with almost immediately more than a quarter of the available shares sold off at a 30% profit by waiting investors/vultures. The share price asked by the government was £3.30 a share and almost immediately the share price rose to £4.70 a share, so some people made a very quick buck! The government has short changed us initially for £700million, and expect the figure to rise! They made blasted sure their good pals, the company who arranged the sale for them, gets a handy £50million for their troubles…It just so happens that the same company has been reported recently as having donated £400,000 to the conservative party…neat eh?
As for poor postman pat, they have only left us his black and white cat, the vans already gone.
lets hope that folks in the outlying areas of Scotland don’t expect to get their mail any time soon after it is all sold off, as private companies already refuse to deliver parcels to the just about anywhere north of Perth, and not at all to the Islands…
The only possible good news is that the SNP have already said that should they be the first government of an Independent Scotland, they will renationalise our Royal Mail. But that is only If we get as far as voting YES…Vote no…and you can forget about your community postal buses.
Meanwhile, it has been announced by the first of the private energy companies SSE that our energy prices for gas and electric will be going up by a whopping 8.4% come November, the rest of the other energy companies will no doubt follow suit shortly…. In a country (Scotland) which is full of bloomin energy, we are being ripped to shreds just trying to keep warm, and worse still…The Red Cross is now taking action to try and feed us..we are a third world country with first class resources benefiting the rich financiers in London, under this British government, and all the ones before it.
Back in the 1980s they sold of British Gas, and did the same as they are doing now with Royal Mail….They told everyone to tell Sid….. And guess what….we cannot afford to keep warm up here in the North now…. Instead all their vast profits go to feed shareholders…stuff the plebs!
Here is a wee reminder….and when you see the bit where the Postie wants to tell Sid….Tell him for Gods sake …Don’t Listen!
