In the mail: Both Barrels

The Libdems have been caught out once again on the Post Office. Hoping there was a mass wave of public amenesia in the mail, they prayed in vain people would forget that they actually want to privatise Post Offices. Clearly the package didn't get to Moray, as Angus Robertson delivered them both barrels in Scottish Questions.

Angus Robertson: What recent discussions he has had with Ministers on the future of the post office network in Scotland.
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland (David Cairns): I meet regularly with ministerial colleagues to discuss a wide range of issues.
Angus Robertson: I thank the Minister for that reply. I am sure that he will acknowledge the concerns across the country about the future of the Post Office, but is he aware of the growing dismay about those politicians who claim to support postal services while actually wanting to privatise them? That is, of course, the policy of the Liberal Democrats.
David Cairns: I entirely agree with the point that the hon. Gentleman—whom I almost called my right hon. friend—makes.

The fibs resented privatising the Royal Mail, it meant they had to walk their shares all the way to London
