Peter Mandelson, more recently Lord Mandelson , an unelected cabinet minister in Gordon Brown’s waste of space Labour government today announced the row over the sell off of the UK Royal Mail business was making the task of finding a buyer much harder.
It would appear that Mandelson would not only want us to accept that there is no alternative to the sell off, we are now also expected not to question it and challenge the government’s wisdom that the sell off is necessary.
Whether the Royal Mail actually needs to be sold is not the point – I don’t know enough either way, but the disdain that this government has for the citizenry is frightening. Let them carry on – they are in the throes of a dying government, one that will not be back for a while.
I for one will be voting Liberal Democrats.
