Lord Mandelson interview
I've just interviewed Lord Mandelson and reminded him of his previous words on privatising Royal Mail.
His answer should still the doubts of those who fear that part-privatisation is merely a first step to fully privatising it.
He told me: "We have no desire to privatise, no intention to privatise it and no plan to change our intention either."
So, he's saying yes to part-privatisation but no to full privatisation.
He suggests that if Royal Mail were a private company it would not deliver a universal, single price, six-day-a-week service throughout the UK.
