The Foy Boy

One hundred and twenty Labour MPs are a tad upset with The Foy Boy, Business Secretary Mandelson, so the Telegraph reports.

One little snippet in the article also informs us that the Government with a view to making the 'sell-off' more attractive to investors, will take over the £7billion pension fund deficit of Royal Mail which costs taxpayers around £600million each year - so more personal debt for us taxpayers!

If these 120 Labour 'rebels' are true to their stated beliefs and actually show some bravery in voting against the proposed 'sell-off' then we are informed that the Government will have to rely on Conservative support; the Conservatives being in favour of the deal.

Of course MandelFoy needs to get the deal through, for two reasons. Firstly, it is no longer in this country's hands how it runs its own postal service, this being an EU competence; and secondly, to retain his EU pension MandelFoy must work to promote EU objectives. As for Conservative 'support', what can one expect from a party committed to EU membership?

It never ceases to amaze me how EU politician 'luvvies' continue to project the false image that they actually formulate the laws of this country when they are, in reality, in thrall to the EU and reliant on being told what they can and cannot do by that same obnoxious collection of foreigners - hows that for a bit of xenophobia?
