It's no wonder the Royal Mail is dying. I send so little by post nowadays that I estimate that it will probably cost me an extra 50p over the next year. A few years ago I may have moaned about the increase but now I'm not that affected as it's only a few birthday and Christmas cards that I have to physically post.
I doubt I or anyone here could deliver a posted letter to anywhere in mainland Britain in a day for 41p. I say make the cost of a stamp 50p, do away with second class postage, and give businesses a special low rate of bulk posting.
