NO2ID - Stop ID cards and the database state

We hear that not only is the head of the Post Office getting about a squillion quid in pay and bonuses this year, but because the Post Office has made so much money, all its employees are to be given a thousand pounds on top of their pay.
Now letting employees share in the success of a company is generally reckoned to be a good thing. It's fair, it's generous, it's good public relations and it's a great incentive.
What everyone forgets is that this used to be our Post Office. It wasn't a company to be run for profit, it was a public service for the benefit of each and every one of us.
So where's my thousand pounds, please?
(I also used to own a railway network, a steel industry, a gas industry, loads of power stations, an airline and quite a few coal mines, but some thieving bastard stole them. And now I hear that Alistair Darling is planning to steal my roads as well).
