BA Re- Nationalized

Turns out the CEO of British Airways thinks it's a government department (my ellipsis):
Last week Mr Straw (a minister in Blair's government) attacked the airline’s stance (of banning employees wearing Christian symbols but letting them wear Hindu and Muslim symbols) as “quite intolerable”.

Mr Broughton (the CEO) asked Mr Blair: “Given that the police, the army and other government uniformed staff have an identical policy to BA in relation to crosses outside of the uniform, do you find the Government’s policy wholly inexplicable?”
