Unions begin fight to save Royal Mail

In what could become a very damaging and a very controversial battle, the unions have today issued a hit list of 71 of the country's most vulnerable MPs amid attempts to persuade those in small majority constituencies to vote against the proposed privatisation. The unions are hoping to mobilize not only union members in the UK but also the local public in areas of interest highlighting the fact that a sale of Royal Mail could lead to significant post office closures.

There were rumours just prior to the election that the unions had already drawn up battle plans in the event that the Conservatives or even a coalition government won office. It is believed that strike action announced this week, which took in the BBC and will likely affect the Conservative party conference, was already in the planning stage months ago.

In what many see as a hike back to the 1980s when Margaret Thatcher took on, and in the view of many people, beat the unions we could be set for yet another battle between the Conservative party and the Labour left. Labour Party MPs have a very tricky situation to consider because if they are seen to move too far to the left they may well alienate the public.
