Royal Mail - make it a Partnership

The best suggestion I've heard is to make the Royal Mail a partnership like John Lewis. We need to get shot of the "them and us" situation which is destroying it. All grades of staff should be accountable to the partners. All long-serving staff should generally be partners in the business. Thus empowered, the postal workers collectively are perfectly capable of modernising and streamlining. Everyone knows there is a finite amount of money available for the service.
