The Gurnmeister turns to non-parochial affairs for a second or two.
Now the taxpayer is paying untold billions to keep a cluster of basket-case banks up and running, even paying out bonuses to the reckless people that got us into the mess we are now in. Meanwhile the government is telling the post office workers that they must allow the operation to be 'part' privatised, telling them that their pensions might no longer exist if they don't. Now compare the actions of the dysfunctional organisations called banks to those of the Post Office and ask yourself which institution you would like to preserve? Wouldn't it be easier to pay out all the depositors in the failed banks and offer them accounts at the Post Office rather than throw good money after bad. I'd sooner see the likes of the Nairn posties in a secure job than the likes of the total 'bankers' that have made such a mess.
Simple gurnonomics yes, but I'm sure there will be one or two Gurnites that agree?
