Lost in the (Huffington) Post: Labour's Royal Mail betrayal

This new column by CPO Director Neil Clark  appears in the Morning Star.

One of the funniest moments in the hilarious Blackadder Goes Forth series was when our heroes are reminiscing about their time in the first world war trenches before the going "over the top" in the final "big push."
"I mean, we've had some good times. We've had damnably good laughs, eh?" says the silly-arse public schoolboy George (played by Hugh Laurie). "Yes. Can't think of any specific ones, myself..." replies Captain Blackadder.
I was reminded of that classic exchange when reading the article on Labour's policy towards the privatisation of the Royal Mail by shadow business secretary Chuka Umunna, published on the Huffington Post website.

Asking for promises by politicians is meaningless. Blair promised to re-nationalise the railways if they came to power in 1997. That was soon forgotten about.
