Postman Pat Makes £900,000 A Day - But Shuts Your Post Office!
Record Profits at The Royal Mail, while a postage stamp leaps 3p, second deliveries are a thing of the past, domestic deliveries are closer to lunch time than breakfast time, thousand of much needed post offices are closed with a farcical figleaf of "consultation", and The Dark Lord mutters about selling a large part of the business to a foreign company because British Managers don't have the right DNA to run a business. What the fuck?
Adam Crozier and other top bosses are doubtless entitled to huge bonuses. I doubt that there are inflation busting payrises lined up for the rank and file.
Part of the problem faced by the closed and due to close post offices in rural areas and backstreets is the stupidity of the government in forcing pensioners to have bank accounts for their pittances and benefits, rather than going to the post office. Similarly, try picking up a Passport Application Form. Or paying for your fucking TV licence at a Post Office.
