Could the people buy what the people already own?

Interesting article on the BBC website today.
'Essex County Council has become the first local authority in the country to discuss taking over the running of post offices earmarked for closure. ' Essex County Council seems to be a convservative dominated council. Is a new form of capitalism on the horizon? You certainly know you are in a new millennium when the wicked capitalist labour party attack our communities by closing post offices and then the nice Tories try a bit of communty sponsered socialism to defend us. But then perhaps all of the post offices could have been saved for the price of a House of Commons wine cellar refit.

Could this be a prospect for the Highland Council? The BBC reports a representitive from Essex 'Councillor Stephen Castle said some 15 other local authorities had expressed an interest in its project. '

Maybe we could pay our council tax down in Harbour Street, even our Harbour fees too?
