"Royal" Mail to be privatised.

Recommended Posts

Royal Mail being privatised does not really concern me other than I fear for the people lower down the food chain who may lose their jobs, while the the want for another word, the bosses at the top wil get bigger bonuses and more rewards in the way of share options etc.

 

Regarding losing the queens head, not really concerned as it makes no difference whos head is or isn't on the stamp, just having 'UK' in the top corner would be suffiecient for me.

 

Also as paper/metal money seems to being going out of fashion which also has the queens head on them, credit/debit cards don't, and people don't seemed to be rioting in the streets or publishing petitions of Facebook?

There was a funny comment made on TV last week....

 

The question was 'Does the queen carry money' ?

 

One answer given was it was highly unlikely as it would upset her to see all the various pictures of her on coins and notes as she would be reminded every day just how much she has aged :lol:

Well with all the anti-royal vitreol on this thread, it is no wonder the country has gone to the dogs.

 

Maybe if we had more pride in our country instead of being all too eager to hand over its wealth to Europe and a bunch of freeloading immigrants; it may be a better place

Is it treason to want a Democracy, where if you want power you have to get voted in. Are Royal Family Baz are German :!:

 

Apart from Philip, I thought that they were all born over here?

 

You have a Democracy, or did until your beloved European Fuehrers started telling us how to run our lives and country. :roll:

The Queen, as Head of State, has power only in the fact that she denies power to others. Frankly an elected President would probably cost us as much, if not more - however, the Royals could be slimmed down to the level of their Dutch and Scandanavian counterparts. As for the Royal Mail, yet another "British" Company up for sale to the highest bidder; no doubt allowing foreign interests to impinge on the political motivation of our elected class. :roll:

The Royal family were mostly born here Kije.... and as for your ludicrous statement about democracy; what the hell do you know about democracy? You are advocating handing over everything we have to a bunch of bloody foreigners and then we will get no say in what happens over here.......

 

Bog off to Brussels you bloody traitorous dog

:lol: thought he was all for "immigrants" - German or otherwise?! :lol:

 

Kije only likes the freeloading "in the back of a lorry" type immigrants. That way his liberal, doo-gooding can come into its own while he feels sorry for them and he must help and give them money and houses.....

 

Bloody traitor

Back to the Roal Mail. My thinking is that if the network is privatised the companies will focus on profitability rather than service to the community and this might not be good news for people in more rural locations. :roll:
