On the Royal Mail being threatened with administration:
Staggering, isn’t it, that something considered a universal public necessity for more than 180 years is now reduced to the risk of insolvency by being privatised.
Could it be that alongside water, electricity, gas, buses, trains and essential telecoms, the mail service needs to be nationalised to guarantee that such basic public services might continue to exist?
‘Tater’s rather missed the point about the Royal Mail. The management is threatening to do that in order to frighten the unions. Because union agreements do get torn up in administration.
It’s a declining business, things have to change, the unions won’t let the changes be implemented.
