Following on from the Hooper Report, the government is proposing to part-privatise Royal Mail, the letter delivery arm of the Post Office. There’s no silly nonsense about putting the arrangement out to tender so we the taxpayers get the best deal either. They’ve already lined up TNT to take 30% of Royal Mail. The announcement has roused fury among millions of people - trade unionists and just ordinary people who use Royal Mail, which is pretty well everyone. Why mess about with something that works well? We have the cheapest postal service in Western Europe. We are the only country in the European Union that still has a Saturday delivery.
