Vague ramblings

A very sub Post Office

Posted in Musing by Ian Cundell on 31 August, 2004

I went to renew my car tax today. Once it would have been an easy stroll up to the local shops and the sub-post office. Then such good stuff was removed from sub-post offices. Then the sub-post office itself was removed.

The drone from the Post Office said that the closure was necessary in order to keep other sub-post offices open. That is garbage. Utter, utter garbage – exactly the same garbage it used the last time it had a round of closures. Lies.

Soon, it seems, there will be only the one Post Office – on Trafalgar Square – with nine counters (six open) and a queue half way up Pall Mall.

The despicable death-by-a-thousand-cuts manner in which the Post Office is abandoning small town Britain is a national disgrace.
