Dear Mr Laws.

It's time to challenge Royal Mail and  the Government on their plans to go  ahead with privatisation and the problems it will bring.  Compulsory redundancies, selling off mail centres, fresh attacks on pensions and new contracts of employment. End to end competition will result in the race to the bottom and will destroy the company and the universal service obligation. Please oppose the privatisation of Royal Mail.

    1. Yeovil Labour Party Oppose privatisation of Royal Mail.

      Petition Organizer

      At a meeting of the Yeovil Constituency Labour Party (CLP) they was overwhelming support to strongly oppose the Governments plan to sell Royal mail later this year. There was unanimous vote in favour to back 'The Save our Royal Mail' Campaign. www.saveourroyamail.org
      Yeovil CLP supports the case to keep Royal Mail in Public ownership and agree with the Communications workers union that a new model that allows profits to be re-invested back into the company and the workforce would be in the best interest of the Public.
      The Governments plan to support privatisation favoured by Yeovil MP David Laws will wreck the industry as their plans for investment will take out more money from the company than a private investor will put in.
      Murray Shepstone Yeovil CLP Vice-Chairman said "we do not need to buy Royal Mail we already own it! This is not just selling of the family silver it is privatising the Queens head."

      Because i use them to post ebay and Amazon items and cannot do without them. Just lower the ridiculous prices and improve the customer service. I stood waiting for 40 minutes in Yeovil the other day! 31 customers in the que and only two women serving. UPS collect from me at home and are cheaper. Hope this helps.

      You came to our office 2 years ago and told us it was not in your interest to sell royal mail off.

      Look at you now Mr Laws.

      You are a disgrace to your constituants.
