What is this post thing of which you speak? Where doth one find such a post thing? Is it some ancient trickery of the devil and his cohorts that hath been brought upon us?

Must use up my Christmas stamps quickly, presumably they will be surcharged after the increase...

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.

Perhaps it may deter the sending of some of the junk mail I receive, but I doubt it.

Just the opposite I'm afraid, as Royal Mail have just removed the restriction on the amount of unaddressed mail they will deliver.

It used to be three items per household per week, but now there will be no limit. Which means I'll have to get a bigger recycling bin...

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.

SNAIL MAIL including PARCEL FARCE have managed to completely loose TWO items for me since xmas, they are nothing short of a joke...
