A report by Greenwich University’s Public Service International Research Unit says: Nationalising water, energy & Royal Mail would pay for itself within 7 years. Coupled with free Broadband for all can only happen with a @UKLabour Gov #VoteLabour2019 🌹👍 https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/nationalise-royal-mail-energy-water-savings-bills-national-grid-a9203636.html
Well that could have been worse – only three of them shouted “Daddy!”
The more i listen to BT Enterprise’s reasoning as to why compulsory redundancy is required, the less i believe it. Total disrespect for our members that have given their all for the Company. All to justify a senior managers bonus, whilst putting our members on the scrapheap.
And while we're at it on costs, here's another interesting stat: Since privatisation in 1984 BT has paid out some £54bn in dividends (in today's values) That's enough to pay capital costs for a nationwide fibre network *twice over*
Labour's broadband policy is going down a storm. And here's an interesting fact: having one infrastructure provider is cheaper than the Tory's approach of having several. By some £12bn. Says who? Says the research the government itself has published... https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/727890/FTIR_Annex_A_-_FE_Report.pdf

We’ve all been there: ‘oh no how do we respond to this?...blah blah, competition, growth, undesirable...gigabit’...oh dear.

Absolute policy 🔥 on broadband from Labour Rollout publicly owned full fibre network to every address by 2030 *Free* full fibre broadband for every home & business Delivered by nationalising relevant parts of BT Funded by a tech-giant tax This is what a Labour gov is for 💥
To all the @England fans, I wanted to leave things at it was but tonight I have to speak again : it was hard for me to see my team mate get booed for something that was my fault. Joe hasn’t done anything wrong & for me to see someone who keeps his head down and work hard..
Two of Labour’s most striking policy commitments ahead of this election — free broadband and a four day week — have come straight from the CWU.
Massive announcement from Labour. Free broadband for every home alongside bringing parts of BT back into public hands. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/labour-renationalise-broadband-giving-every-20883859
We’ve just held a Facebook live and with only an hours notice over 20,000 members have already viewed it. Incredible. The message to @royalmailnews is clear: WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED #WeRiseAgain 🦁 https://www.facebook.com/ThecommunicationsUnion/videos/633662943836068?vh=e&d=n&sfns=mo
Spot on... it just has to stop being ok. The days of “ sucking it up “ are over, or they should be....
The Tory Party have been in power for almost 10 years I am yet to see a leaflet, quote or any campaign material stating all they have achieved during that time, instead just empty promises. That says it all really Almost a decade of failure #VoteLabour2019🌹🌹🌹
Tory Anti-Trade Union Laws + RM Board + one statement from a Senior Manager and the Judge delivers for the establishment and takes away an epic ballot result. Make no mistake this is about the establishment taking on Working people.
Laws created to shackle workers and keep them in their place need to be smashed 👊👊👊
This is why we need to repeal the Anti-Trade Union laws. Solidarity will the 110,000 postal workers across the country.
This is outrageous. Solidarity with @CWUnews This is why we so urgently need to elect a Labour Govt - to repeal the laws that give employers so much power. We need to change the balance of power in the workplace, so unions can do their job & win a better deal for working ppl.
So the High Court have blocked @CWUnews strike action at Royal Mail - despite 97% of members voting in favour. More proof the system is rigged against working people. We must be able to stand up for our rights or the bosses will walk all over us. #WeRiseAgain 🦁
If workers cannot remove their labour as the ultimate demonstration against bad management, how are our human rights upheld? This can’t happen in most modern democratic countries. Shame on us.
I spoke on this issue at our annual conference in 2018. Unfortunately Hubert Howard and many like him was predictable Clearly a racially motivated scandal laid bare and I still hear black people intending to vote Tory.... what do they need to do before we wake up @CWUnews @NWCWU
This is exactly what the elitists think of our hard working NHS staff. Would YOU like the thought of somebody caring for you or your family being on their second or third job in a day?@Alan11447823 @NWCWU @DaveWardGS @ScouseGirlMedia @Ian4WestDerby

The irony of Michael Gove lecturing anybody about Education Policy. Michael you were a disaster as Education Secretary. It’s taking years to clean the mess up you made, when l speak at education events and yr name is mentioned it’s like l have mentioned the pantomime villain! ☹️
