I really envy Emma, never having lived with our nationalised utilities. When you were a subscriber and an irritant to the producer.

Really surprised that you can have a decision on privatisation of Royal Mail without at least touching on the role of the EU in pushing the agenda and the shenanigans in the EU Parliament.

I like the idea of mutualising some of the banks. A mixed market is generally better for all. But just remember that Spain's financial problems were driven in a large part by their mutuals, the Cajas.

And reference your quip about 80% (or whet-ever it was) drivers being above average, it is theoretically possible. eg take the following test scores (out of 10) [9, 8, 8, 7 , 5, 8, 8, 9, 9, 1] average = 7.2 therefore 80% above average.
