Interesting Fact - Privatisation

On the day the Royal Mail is privatised I think it's timely to remind everyone that even the great white shark Margaret Thatcher refused to flog off the Royal Mail.

(Her reason was she wasn't prepared to privatise the Queen's head.

In a YouGov poll in July 2013, two-thirds of British adults opposed the privatisation of the Royal Mail.

Nice to know that the Tories are listening to the common people.)


!Update - Three months on from privatisation, shares are trading around 561p, 70% higher than the original price of 330p.  (I'm still glad I didn't buy any.)
