In the book Going Postal we read of a telecommunications company that has a new CEO who acts like a pirate (ie a Merchant Banker).
The book encompasses large parts of the horror of employees who see their once beloved company being carved off for profit. The amount of emotion and angst in this book makes it sound like a personal experience.
It is interesting that this was probably written slightly after the British privatisation of British Telecom, of whom Terry Pratchett could have been an employee.
My question is: Is there evidence to suggest (from Going Postal) that Terry Pratchett worked at BT during the privatisation?
