National Interest And Post Office Closures

Funny how Gordon Brown invokes "national interest" to ignore competition legislation so that Lloyds TSB can take over HBOS and prevent a mega-Northern Rock catastrophe yet the network of Post Offices is undergoing vicious pruning. Is it not in the national interest for pensioners, disabled people and everyone else to have access within walking distance of a wide range of banking, utility and government services? Or does national interest only extend as far as the jobs of Bank of Scotland workers (and I hope that any redundancies will be voluntary) in Scotland and how that affects the electoral prospects of Labour in Scotland? Remember that Gordon Brown signed the 1988 Claim of Right and declared and pledged that the interests of the Scottish people shall be paramount in all his actions and deliberations.

Say No to the Double Crossers!
