The “significantly undervalued” sell-off of Royal Mail has brought unexpected harmony to all sides of the political spectrum – with the Tory Bow Group and the TUC unified in what a disaster it’s been. They’re even using the same analogies…
The BBC’s Norman Smith reported the Bow Group had attacked the sell off “at a fraction of its value.”
“You can sell £10 notes for £5 all day long and call it a success”
Meanwhile, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Privatising Royal Mail has become little different from selling five pound notes for four quid.”
Perhaps the first time in history a Conservative think tank has considered a privatisation to be even worse for the country than the TUC did.
