We have been waiting for a couple of letters and parcels to arrive for the past three weeks. Apparently the postal workers at the Royal Mail postal depot near Watford, North London have been unofficially striking. One of our package arrived last week, but was sliced open. Fortunately the content was not stolen, but then it was worth nothing.
I suspect there are rogue postal workers who are stealing our posts at the sorting office. It is a massive allegation to make but I believe it to be very true. So far only invaluable posts has arrived but things that parcels with goods that have commercial value has failed to turn up. On the other hand the only post being delivered to us by the posties are junk mails. Not by kids but by the posties! Just why do they think it is okay to demand a pay rise when they are moonlighting delivering junks and stealing our mails?
For fuck's sake just sack the lot of them (management and posties), steal their pensions and privatised Royal Mail. When a left winger like me is advocating privatisation you know something has gone seriously wrong somewhere.
