Dear Mr Cameron,
Sing a song of sixpence:
Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
Oh wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!
She made such a commotion that little Jenny Wren
flew down to the garden and popped it on again.
What a tale for our times of peasants, robbers, kings, queens and that
robbing popinjay, Baron (to be) Osborne, and social justice activist in
the shape of little Jenny Wren.
As I write today, the nations
infamous robber baron, George Osborne, with a 2:1 bachelor’s degree in
Modern History, has announced on Twitter:
“We’ve finished process
of returning @RoyalMail to private sector. Right thing to do for Royal
Mail workforce, customers and the taxpayer.”
Back in 1516 when
that black-hearted wife killer Henry VIII was on the throne of merrie
England, he established a Master of the Posts which later became a
service available to the public in the reign of Charles I and the ‘Royal
Mail’ remained a publicly owned service until 15 October 2013 when you
flogged off 70% it at a bargain basement price to the avid delight of
hedge fund speculators. So it is with some measure of surprise to hear
our resident robber baron and student of history talking about returning
Royal Mail to a private sector to which it has never belonged, ever. Or
is it the case now that ‘to the robbers belong the spoils’ and a legal
precedent of a robbers retroactive right of ownership of pilfered loot
pre-dating the actual robbery? A significant insight into your
governments behaviour methinks.
George Osborne, can’t do
economics, can’t do history or chooses to ignore it for self serving
purposes and lies to the public, which part of this exactly is the
‘right thing to do for (the) Royal Mail workforce, customers and the
As a regular customer of the Royal Mail I guess what I
have to look forward to is the usual decline in service that follows
privatisation, loyal staff thrown out on their ears, rising costs and an
asset stripped service descending into chaos and all for a fast buck
for the greedy slime-balls in the damned ‘free’ markets.
