Royal Mail home-truths

Just had a good chuckle listening to Billy Hayes, the gen sec of the CWU. He said that he failed to understand why the Labour Government doesn’t have a view on the changes in the postal service nor the dispute that is currently unfolding. After all he says `the Government own the Post Office and the Royal Mail – if i were a shareholder in a company that was having these problems I’d want to give a view`. A- ha – the penny’s dropped!

As ever Brown/Blair statism keeps at `arms length` those things that are controversial and of which they will have to give a controversial opinion. Of course, when it comes to fluffy bunny issues, they will opine until they’re blue in the face.

Whether it is over Iraq (where Brown is trying to disclaim all responsibility by playing the `Iraq card`) or this nu Labour simply skates over the issue either by spinning its way out of it or simply ignoring it.
