You however, if what you have posted to date is correct, were lucky enough to join a now privatised public utility, so your bed was made & stuff the rest of the country?

I joined the company you referred to in 1975. At that time it was split into two halves, Postal services and Telephones, effectively I was a Civil Servant. The telephone side was privatised in 1981.

In that case, I apologise. I was under the impression you joined later than that.

Has it really gotten this bad over there?

Don't think so. McDonalds is a US Company.
Why London have to have these "resturants" open 24/7 is beyond me.
In Stockholm they tried but it didn't work.

Not only is Russell Brand in favour of voting for Labour but so is Stephen Hawking.

Bit hypocritical of him isn't it? After it's not that long past where he urged people not to vote!

So which is it?

They mostly all seemed to have supported that party which despises their rich life styles hence want's to tax them to the hilt. Here we go again, I have to say it, "These turkeys are all voting for Christmas". Now I know why I have never ever related to these TV and film stars, because their all gormless.

Not sure Hev realised that :-)

The problems with people like Brand is that they don't realise they are much worse than any corrupt politician. With todays youth having their heads stuck in social media & idolising celebrities, many will listen to them rather than politicians.

As for communications from the "other" parties, not 5 minutes ago, received 2 flimsy leaflets - UKIP & Labour - still nothing from the blues...

...well as the "Blues" won the premier league on Sunday, let's hope that all the blues win this month :-)

Just stating a fact, not sneering. Bit funny though...endorsing Brand who calls people a tw*t yet castigate a fellow poster for doing that.

Just like Brand telling people not to vote & now saying vote Labour - learnt a lot in the past few weeks did he?

If the exit polls are to be believed, its a great night for the SNP and a bad night for the Lib Dems.
