Post About The Post
This afternoon there was a mass demonstration in Beeston against plans to privatise the Royal Mail and the ongoing spending cuts being imposed by the Government. There must have been well over 300 people in the march, either carrying banners, shouting slogans or blowing vuvuzelas. All in all it was a very light hearted affair, with none of the scuffles with police that you sometimes see reported on the news
The march started at the sorting office, went along the High Road and then they convened at a social club, where several speakers, including Broxtowe's former MP talked about the situation and the way forward. There are local government elections later this year, and no doubt this question will be on a lot of electors' minds.
