I couldn’t help notice that the Lib Dems are up to their old trick of pretending to be all things to all people. The News Shopper report that they’ll be putting down:
a motion against a decision to move post offices to branches of WH Smith.
Laudable stuff perhaps, but I couldn’t help doing a bit of digging and look at what they say nationally:
We further believe branches should be free to enter into business arrangements with other firms on a branch by branch basis. This will require some degree of loosening of central control by Post Office Ltd.
And that’s without looking at what other knots their policies on Royal Mail and the Post Office create for their members.
