You need to be more specific, the last government tried to do this, do we class them as "Tories" as well?
That's Labour's ongoing problem. On far too many issues they do appear to try to out-Tory the Tories and in the process, they alienate a lot of their own supporters who cannot understand or agree with this approach.
According to David Cameron at PMQs this week, the last Labour government would have privatised Royal Mail, but were prevented from doing so due to the influence of those perennial bogeymen, the trade unions. I think Cameron meant this as a criticism of the trade union role in Labour, but given the lack of public support for Royal Mail privatisation, then and now, some might regard it as having been a positive influence, if that is indeed what happened.
None of which detracts from the fact that Royal Mail was privatised by this government and they have done it in such a way that the taxpayer has been right royally fleeced to the tune of £750 million or more by city spivs, and no one in the government seems to think it is their responsibility or that it is worth either an apology or a resignation. Yet imagine what they would have been saying if the last Labour government had engineered a similar state of affairs!
