ah yeah , not thought of that and it was at the height of the thatcher / regan years , yeah that was a bigger bang , the 1971 bang was just a minor bang in comparison . nearly 30 years to get here but now we can't get out , we've entered a vortex and spinning helplessly to the centre of the financial black hole .
The day of deregulation for the securities market in London, England on October 27, 1986, in which the London Stock Exchange (LSE) became a private limited company. The event revitalized the LSE because outside corporations were allowed to enter its member firms and automated price quotation was established.
jings I thought the creation of the current financial universe , the beginning of the chaos we're experiencing now ( very good lol ) started in 1971 when we came fully off a gold standard ( well part gold standard as it was ) . jings gravity ( when I jump up a bit I still come back down ) was meant as reference to RBS , will jump a bit but come back down unfortunately for holders . . mailman , like you say its history now , but the farce still needs looking into . the posties shares they got aren't allowed to be sold for 2 years ,(according to my postie ) so they are worth nothing yet in a way ( what price will they be then ? ) , then we have the job losses that was in the news 1600 I think it is . i agree posties haven't lost out too much for now , but i think in the long run they will be losers and like a lot of workers it will be more hours less pay , less security . . i never understood why they got rid of the cycles and your post is spot on about how hard a job it is on the body and at times an unpleasant job to do in bad weather . lets hope this great service doesn't go down hill .
Yes, I couldn't believe the Royal Mail didn't grab Sir Bradley Wiggins after the Olympics. What a marketing coup that would have been! The Royal Mail could have been at the centre of a cycling revolution throughout the UK with every posties bike promoting the cause. Instead they did away with the bikes, absolutely crazy! Much like the guy (forget his name) who turned down the Beatles.
The big bang 1986 , the creation of the current financial universe , the beginning of the chaos we're experiencing now , Lol...........as for gravity , you losing your sense of humour . ...MSM . Difficult to believe much of what you read these days , best to ignore it and do your own research .
Regarding RM sale ... Sadly that's life... The sell off which was 200 times over subscribed still went ahead ...
MPs are a law unto them selfs... as we all know.... The public have minimal say if any ...on countless things...
It is now history along with many other sell offs.... a few made a great killing and 80% of the public had little interest... it is mainly hyped up in the media with little point as it will not be altered... and as said it is now History.
The posties have for once have not lost or have been shafted as they have been with many other issues during the past 10 years... Their allocation being worth about 4k at the moment ... better than the nothings they have received in the past promised years.
Most posties have now lost their cycles and have to walk every step now with a trolley... some I know walk 6 miles a day after standing for 2 hours before their delivery sorting their mail. 6 miles a day ..5 days a week is around 1450 a year... 10 years 14,000 miles.... more are now the past 5 years are suffering knee and leg issues... since cycles were removed... it has become a young mans job... but not many youngsters can stand walking soaking wet for 4 hours in rain and cold... no other job has that amount of walking involved everyday... outside in all weathers...
Somebody has to do it... as there are major problems when the mail deliveries stop......
Brilliant sunny blue sky on Norfolk coast today... long may it last... after MY FIRST... SNOWLESS WINTER...
so the royal mail sale is under scrutiny . just listening to radio4 (news at one ) , another bungling mess for the tax payer and very good for the so called long term holders the government sorted for . the top 16 shareholders have sold 50% of there holdings , so now they basically have virtually free shares left . Osborne's /cables friends are happy but the taxpayers and workers at royal mail lost out nicely .
