Royal Mail Privatisation: Wrong Again

Labour MP Jim McGovern has briefly leapt from obscurity and has resigned from the government, unhappy at government plans for the part-privatisation of Royal Mail.

Quite right too: they should be privatising all of it.

On a less flippant note, full privatisation has to be the ultimate way forward, but only if coupled with genuine measures to bring competition and a free market into domestic mail services (the true objective of privatisation). Sadly, I expect the usual reaction would be to set up another regulator who would pretend to control the state-created monopoly and “come under fire” every time prices went up.
