Miliband: Royal Mail 'undervalued for taxpayers'

It's a fire sale of a great institution at a knock-down price. It has been undervalued for taxpayers and undervalued for customers.

Its a dogmatic privatisation by this government and they have made it even worse by undervaluing it.

The Government are doing it for ideology and it's not in the best interests of this country.

– Labour leader Ed Miliband
