No Post Office Privatisation without the fight of your life, Labour supporters warn Mandelson

19th December 2008

Following the public statements by new Business Secretary Peter Mandelson, calling for the part-privatisation of Royal Mail, Labur MPs and supporters have reacted angrily.

John McDonnell MP, LRC Chair, said

“This proposed privatisation of the Post Office by the newly anointed Business Secretary is madness. It would undermine an essential public service.”

“In the current economic climate, throwing the Post Office to the wolves of the private sector will lead to further job losses and cuts in services on an unprecedented scale, and will not be forgiven by Labour supporters. Mandelson will be in for the fight of his life if he attempts to privatise this popular service.”
